Web site live for WONDER WORLD

Welcome to 2009! C-U Blogfidential hopes that you finished out 2008 with a bang. It took us a full week to recover – the details of which are quite confidential, thank you – but now we’re back on the case!

And so is Daniel Griffith, the independent producer we interviewed last spring about his documentary covering the life and times of B-movie impresario K. Gordon Murray. He has finally opened an official Web site to that project, THE WONDER WORLD OF K. GORDON MURRAY, which went live yesterday, Wednesday, January 7, although there is not much substance at the moment beyond some nifty graphics and a pair of lengthy teaser trailers.

Chances are good that progress reports will appear on Griffith’s MySpace page, which is decorated with ephemera from the career of Bloomington-born Murray. For instance, the Tennessee filmmaker revealed a few weeks ago that the project’s narrator is none other than veteran actor/producer Ross Hagen, whom we interviewed in MICRO-FILM 3 about his adventures while making BAD CHARLESTON CHARLIE in central and southern Illinois in the Seventies!

THE WONDER WORLD OF K. GORDON MURRAY should debut later this year. Until then, the curious can check out the recent BCI Eclipse DVD release of vintage horror drama STANLEY (1972) for which Griffith produced a making-of piece.
