description

"At first I didn't like 'The Big Doll House.' I thought it had gone a little too far with the sex and the violence. It cost about $100,000 and it grossed something like $4 million. When I saw the grosses, I have to admit, my scruples faded away and I said, 'Let's make another one.'" Roger Corman

This heavyweight coffee table book is an indulgent look back on the extensive and colourful career of a cinematic hero. "Who the hell is Roger Corman?" we hear you exclaim.

He's the legendary producer, director and writer of hundreds of the most highly watchable (but arguably terrible) movies ever to grace the big screen. Focussed on quick shoots, abominably low production values but great stories and characters – he's masterminded many a cult classic. Very much the "Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus" of his day, but with a little more finesse.

This epic compendium is crammed full of behind-the-scenes stills, lobby cards and best of all – posters! Unadulterated visual banquets that made all of his films absolutely irresistible.

Responsible for launching the careers of many successful Hollywood stalwarts such as James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Francis Ford Coppola, Jack Nicholson and many more. All of which have contributed anecdotes and stories in abundance to this thoroughly captivating volume.
