The Philippines were a haven for budget film production by filmmakers such as Roger Corman in the late 1950s through to the early 1970's - what was the cause of the demise of a pretty steady pipeline of low budget actioners targeted at the US?

    Could you write what reseach on Philippines history you made that didn't yeld any results? Marcos dictatorship, martial law and new constitution condemned by US congress might be the reason. – SZCZERZO KŁY Feb 17 at 12:37
  • I wasn't able to find anything on this - my assumption was the changing economics of film production in the US, but I don't know that there was such a substantive change early 1970's vs mid 1960s (when AIP was still going gangbusters with Filipino productions). It's unlike the 1990's period where access to DV camera's enabled a slew of low budget but notable movies – Nostradamus Feb 17 at 14:35
