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 1978 to capitalize on the success of Star Wars.....Cosmos War of the Planets, Battle in Interstellar Space, War of the Robots and Star Odyssey. (His Beast in Space (1980) was an adult sci-fi film, and was not part of his 1978 space series).
Brescia directed Ator 3: Iron Warrior in 1986 without the series' originator Joe D'Amato's permission, and D'Amato later said that he didn't consider that film part of the Ator series.
