  Manos: The Hands of Fate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Manos: The Hands of Fate is a film written, directed, and produced by American fertilizer salesman Hal Warren in 1966, as a result of a bet.
Warren forgot to add the film's opening credits in post-production, thus the movie opens with a nine minute driving sequence through the west Texas countryside while a tinny jazz soundtrack plays.
The film's November 15, 1966 premiere at the Capri Theater in Warren's hometown of El Paso, Texas, is a tale unto itself.
