Curtis Harrington (USA, 1926), born in Los Angeles and graduated in film studies, was initially a film critic and then directed short films in the vein of Kenneth Anger's avantgarde. Roger Corman hired him to direct the sci-fi movies Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet (1965), a remake of Pavel Klushantsev's Planeta Bur (1962), and Queen of Blood (1966), a variation on Mikhail Karyukov's and Otar Koberidze's Mechte Navstrech (1963). He then directed several horror movies: Games (1967), Whoever Slew Auntie Roo? (1971), What's the Matter with Helen? (1971), Killer Bees (1974), The Killing Kind (1973) and Ruby (1977). His last film was the erotic biopic Mata Hari (1985).
