Summary, etc.:
For Jackey Neyman Jones, who played Debbie in Manos : The Hands of Fate, rhe film is, at its heart, a home movie that just happens to be shared with the world. Equal parts memoir/family saga/film book, this book shares the behind-the-scenes story of the making of Manos: from creator Hal Warren's alleged bet with TV producer Stirling Silliphant that "anyone could make a movie," to the tragic suicide of John Reynolds (Torgo), right up through the newest Manos-related projects that are carrying the film into the digital age. Jackey's stories dispel much of the Manos mythology while crystallizing a unique time and place in America, where a crew of actors with a bad script and a rented camera set out to make a bad movie-and succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.
