Produced by Ovidio Assonitis, Sonny Boy 1989 stars David Carradine and Paul L. Smith as Pearl and Slue, two desert-dwellers who end up "adopting" Sonny Boy (Michael Boston). Slue turns his boy into a feral killing machine in something of a Frankenstein tale.
Screenwriter Graeme Whifler, director Robert Martin Carroll, and star Michael Boston share the history of this fascinating film.
Mike Malloy, author of the upcoming David Carradine: The Lost Auteur, and Maitland McDonagh join Mike White in discussing Sonny Boy.
