B-Movie Legend Roger Corman …
… sits down with The Hollywood Reporter about his life and work and the new documentary: “Roger Corman: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel.”
Here’s the nut graf:
“Corman, who has been called “the king of B-movies,” has made hundreds of low-budget exploitation flicks since the 1950s — films of the sort that played at drive-in theaters (when they still existed), attracted counterculture “teenagers” (a post-World War II phenomenon), and that nostalgic film buffs like Quentin Tarantino still cherish and revisit on late-night TV and DVDs. (Tarantino regards Corman as a hero; cast Pam Grier, a regular of 1970s Corman films, in his 1997 film Jackie Brown; and took his own stab at the exploitation genre in 2007 with Death Proof.)”
