    YES!!!!!!!!! I went to see this in the theater when it came out in 1983. My friends and I spontaneously riffed it. This has always been in my top 10 of movies that I wished MST3K/Cinematic Titanic/the Mads/Rifftrax would do. I bought it without a second thought and am greatly looking forward to watching it.

    From Wikipedia.

    “Variety referred to the film as ‘one of the cheesiest pics to bear a major studio imprimatur recently, and will have to grab the under-12 crowd on opening weekend or two to pay off. Nobody older than that will buy it.’ Janet Maslin of the New York Times admitted to not having finished watching the film for her review, noting that she could not imagine who would want to finish the film. The film was nominated for three Golden Raspberry Awards in 1983, for Worst New Star (Reb Brown), Worst Musical Score, and Worst Original Song (‘Yor’s World’).”

    Oh sweet mercy, yes. Love this movie. Love the soundtrack. Love the original song. Love. It. All.

    Actually the only thing I DON’T love about it is that the name gives away what’s happening, as do most movie posters for it. So anyone who hasn’t seen it already, when the “twist” happens imagine how INSANE it would be if you had absolutely no idea it was coming.

    “Yor’s World” wins the award for worst song ever with the word “World” in the title. Coming in a close second, the theme song to “Elmo’s World.” Anyone with small children or grandchildren will sympathize.

    Is Reb’s voice dubbed over? That doesn’t sound like him in the preview.

    From IMDB Trivia on Yor:

    Even though he was speaking English when filmed, Reb Brown’s voice is dubbed over in the English language version by Gregory Snegoff. For the close-up where Yor yells “Good!” after Kalaa dances for him, Brown was simply belching for each take. However, not all of Yor’s lines were dubbed. When Yor shouts, “Damn talking box!” that is clearly Brown.

    According to Wikipedia:

    Guido and Maurizio De Angelis are Italian musicians.

    Beginnings

    The brothers were born in Rocca di Papa, near Rome; Guido on 22 December 1944 and Maurizio on 22 February 1947. Their musical career started in 1963, where, after successfully publishing an LP, they became arrangers for RCA Italiana. Their success led to many more albums in which they composed, arranged, and sang the music.

    Oliver Onions
    The De Angelis brothers were among the most prolific Italian musicians of the 1970s. In fact, they were forced to use different names for many of their projects to avoid over-saturating the market. One of these was Oliver Onions, which eventually became the name they were mostly identified with.

    Their recording “Santa Maria” was German number one single for six weeks in 1980, followed by the German language version by Roland Kaiser, that was number one for another five weeks. The Roland Kaiser version was also number one in the Netherlands and Belgium.

    Film scores

    Although they released many standalone albums, it is for their soundtrack work for which the De Angelis brothers are best known. Out of their many scores, which includes the main theme for the 1983 Italian cult movie Yor, the Hunter from the Future, undoubtedly the most famous and popular are those composed for the Terence Hill and Bud Spencer comedies. Their song “Dune Buggy” for the 1974 film Watch Out, We’re Mad reached the top of the charts in Europe.

    Their scores included many cult Italian films such as Trinity Is Still My Name, Torso, High Crime, The Violent Professionals, Chino, Street Law, Violent Rome, The Big Racket, Mannaja, The Mountain of the Cannibal God, Killer Fish, and A Blade in the Dark. In 1978, they did an alternate version of the title song for The Return of the Saint TV show starring Ian Ogilvy. Their “Taking It Easy” was used in the European versions of the show, where another version was used in English-speaking countries.

    They are also known for their work on animated series, having composed original songs for Italian-dubbed anime (such as Doraemon, A****a no Joe and Galaxy Express 999) and European series (such as Around the World with Willy Fog). They also composed the music for the 1976 Sandokan television series, which was based on the novel by Emilio Salgari, as well as writing and composing the themes to Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds and Bobobobs.

    Present day

    In November 2007, they gave their first concert in 25 years at the Lucca Comics Festival.

    Their theme for Zorro (1975), “Zorro Is Back”, was featured in Wes Anderson’s Bottle Rocket, and their song “Goodbye My Friend” (from the movie Street Law) featured on the soundtrack to Faster.

    The guy who dubbed Reb’s voice is the same one who did the dubbing for Miles O’Keefe in the Ator films. I thought the voices sounded the same so I had to look him up.

    For humor purposes, I feel like putting up statistics on oceanic pollution. Or maybe a picture of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Something. I’m working on it.

    It is nice that Reb Brown is getting some fandom going. He’s like our generation’s Bela Lugosi

    He’s always had some fandom. Back in the days when IMDB still had forums, his wife (the lady from Space Mutiny) would actually take questions and such from fans on his page. She was a remarkably nice lady.
