While Hollywood has long been the benchmark for cinematic achievement, filmic innovation has invited its share of imitators. Classic foreign rip-offs and remakes include the Turkish "Rambo," Nigerian "Titanic," and Korean "Tron." But the holy grail of these films is Çetin Inanç's "The Man Who Saves the World," better known as “Turkish Star Wars.” Film historian Ed Glaser shares the story behind the film and the rediscovery of this cult classic.
