Alfonso Brescia (6 January 1930 – 6 June 2001) was an Italian film director of low-budget films, sometimes credited as Al Bradley or Al Bradly. Film buffs mainly know him for the four low-budget sci-fi films he hurriedly directed in 1977–78 to capitalize on the success of Star Wars. He directed Ator 3: Iron Warrior in 1986 without the series' originator Joe D'Amato's permission, and D'Amato later said that he considered the Ator series only consisted of films # 1, 2 and 4 (all of which D'Amato directed himself).
