THE WEIRD HISTORY OF 'THE WICKER MAN'


"It stands apart from time and space." - Robin Hardy on "The Wicker Man"

The textbook cult movie, Robin Hardy's THE WICKER MAN, was 40 years old when it appeared in this article from the October 2013 issue of SIGHT AND SOUND. Unloved and even unwanted by the studio that produced it because of its difficulty to market, WM was embraced by US audiences before interest grew in its native UK. Paired with another weirdie, DON'T LOOK NOW on its release, it had been chopped, sliced and diced into numerous versions. Containing images never before published, this excellent article explains the odd history of the film that Christopher Lee said he did his best ever acting job.
