Roger Corman: Blood-Sucking Vampires, Flesh-Eating Cockroaches and Driller Killers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A pioneer of independent cinema, Roger Corman is a fascinating study in contrasts. As the original King of the Exploitation Film, he has filled his movies with images of blood-sucking vampires, rampaging biker gangs, vigilante strippers, and abducting aliens, all while producing each of his four-hundred-plus films on a shoestring budget and making a profit on nearly every one. In the process, Corman became the role model for today's independent filmmaker. This guru with a vision has also demonstrated an uncanny eye for talent, being among the first to recognize and employ the abilities of Jack Nicholson, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Jonathan Demme, Joe Dante, Ron Howard, John Sayles, and James Cameron to name but a few. Through interviews with eighty of Corman's friends and associates and photographs, Beverly Gray takes you behind the cameras and into the heart of Cormanville for a firsthand, insider's look at the man and the mogul, providing a compelling private and public perspective on this soft-spoken giant of the cinema.

Synopsis:

Known for his outlandish directorial style, Corman pioneered independent film making. The hardcover edition of this book debuted at #4 on the "Los Angeles Times" bestseller list.

Synopsis:

An insider's look at the life and times of the indie cinema giant.
