Crossword clues for ator


Ator is a film series of four Italian movies made in the 1980s created by director Joe D'Amato, under the pseudonym David Hills. D'Amato wrote and directed the first, second, and fourth films in the series, himself disregarding the existence of the third. Ator was played in the first three films by Miles O'Keeffe, while Eric Allan Kramer played the Son of Ator in the fourth.

Ator is a swordsman, alchemist, scientist, magician, scholar, and engineer, with the ability to sometimes produce objects out of thin air (see Ator 4). The series seems to emulate the main character of the popular Conan the Barbarian movies. The first Conan film, Conan the Barbarian, was released May 14, 1982; the first Ator movie was filmed shortly thereafter and came out later the same year, premiering October 7, 1982. Controversy has existed for some time that D'Amato created Ator purely as an attempt to make money from the success of the Conan films.
