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 movie The Beast in Space (1980) was an adult sci-fi film, and was not part of his 1978 space series). Horror film fans know him for his 1972 giallo Naked Girl Killed in the Park.

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.

(*Note: imdb confuses the alternate titles of Cosmos with Battle of the Stars, using them interchangeably as if they were the same movie. But they are two completely different films.)
