"Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel" is must see for young people - CinemaDave

Aug. 13th, 2012 09:11 pm "Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel" is must see for young people

"Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel" captures the true spirit of film maker Roger Corman, a man who made over 100 movies and never lost a dime.

This was because Rodger Corman was a resourceful producer/director who gave young people an opportunity to either direct (Peter Bogdanovich, Ron Howard, Martin Scorese) or act (Bruce Dern, Robert De Niro, Jack Nicholson). While many of his associates when on to have skyrocketing careers, Corman remained constant as a rock.

"Corman's World" is an excellent documentary for young people interested in film making. For film historians, it features one of the last interviews from Director George Hickenloober and actor David Carradine.

Roger Corman

I heard Roger Corman tell a funny story on a TV talk show about the time he reluctantly allowed himself to be talked into doing some "friendly sparring" with Charles Bronson. Before Corman knew what was happening Bronson landed a bunch of blows, but luckily for Roger the punches were not full contact.
