Jackey Neyman Jones
It’s been called the “worst movie ever made”, and not only is Jackey Neyman Jones one of its last surviving actors, but she’s the only one willing to talk about it. 2016 marked the 50-year anniversary of the release of Manos: The Hands of Fate, a low-budget horror film considered by many to be the “barometer by which all bad films are rated”. Six year old Jackey played Little Debbie, her father, Tom Neyman was The Master. In 1993 it achieved cult status after Comedy Central’s Mystery Science Theater 3000 dealt the riff treatment and introduced a whole new audience of cult film aficionados to the awkward movie. Today, Jackey Neyman Jones, an artist, actress and producer, lovingly tends to the flame of Manos — with her behind-the-scenes book Growing up with Manos: The Hands of Fate co- authored by Laura Mazzuca Toops (foreword written by Joel Hodgson, creator of MST3K), and with her new sequel film, Manos Returns.
