I apparently got into a disagreement with another blogger over whether or not the original Star Wars movie (now known as Episode Four) was a low budget movie.
To put the argument in perspective I present the trailer and official website for really and truly low budget sci-fi film.
It was apparently shot over several weekends with the three actors getting the guild minimum of $75 a day. Which is a bit less than what I take home while driving a taxi on the night shift in Minneapolis.
I suspect with adjustments for inflation that Ed Wood had bigger budgets for his cinematic disasters.
