“`It tells the story of a scientist who is transformed into a grotesque creature after a house fly enters into a molecular transporter,  resulting in his atoms combining with those of the insect. It produces a human–fly hybrid.

“`Producer-director Kurt Neumann discovered a short story by George Langelaan in Playboy Magazine. Screenplay writer James Clavell adapted Langelaan’s story. The Fly was released in July 1958. Producer-director Kurt Neumann died only a few weeks after its premiere, never realizing he had made the biggest hit of his career.

“`The movie was released in  CinemaScope with Color by Deluxe by Twentieth Century Fox. There were also two black-and-white sequels: Return of the Fly and Curse of the Fly.  The original flick was remade in 1986 by director David Cronenberg. The production’s financial success led to Vincent Price becoming a major horror icon, competing with work of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.

“`There is no debate about it… The Fly is a classic! Anyone got a swatter?
