This is a feature movie but not of Hollywood quality. Here are some trivia about the movie:
The Milpitas Monster took three years to produce. The kids grew during all that time.
The director, Bob Burrill, was an art and photography teacher at Samuel Ayer high, he went on to write a book about the history of Milpitas and illustrated another history of the nearby town of Alviso. He was a student of famous photographer Ruth Bernhard and filmed a documentary of her shown on PBS. Some of his shorter projects can be viewed on YouTube on the moooose69 channel.
The persons in the film were often recruited from those families who contributed money, materials, and volunteer hours into making it.
The heroine, daughter of the Ayer High principal, and the young hero did marry in real life and raised a family.
A claw from the monster's hand was on display at the Great Mall, a shopping mall in Milpitas, until the President of the local historical society had it removed because she did not consider it to be part of the city's history.
The only professional, paid actor in the film was the drunk.
The film was shot in 16mm.
The attorney hired to copyright the film failed to do so, but the trusting producers never checked up on him. It took over 25 years for the error to be discovered.
The film has been pirated around the world with new covers.
The film is still shown in the South San Francisco Bay area as a fund-raiser for various charities, including an annual showing on Halloween to benefit the Niles Railroad Museum in Fremont, CA.
