Sean Cunningham, a Broadway director, went into the film business in 1969. He gathered three crew members, and with a budget of $3,500, he shot The Art of Marriage. He said that he had no idea of what he was doing when he filmed the movie. He did not even think he had to have three crew members.
The film was released in a couple of theaters in 1970. Word-of-mouth made it a hit by the standards of its time, grossing $100,000. Cunningham used $50,000 from the profits to rent his first office.
The film itself has not really established much of a legacy. As of 2011, no DVD release has been issued. However, if the movie had not been a hit, Cunningham would not have gotten his first office and met Wes Craven. As such, this film is what propelled Cunningham into stardom.
