A film biography of Roger Corman, the Hollywood anti-establishment producer-director. The young American filmmaker Alex Stapleton’s documentary examines the career of Roger Corman (director of The Intruder, The Little Shop of Horrors and Machine Gun Kelly, from the Edgar Allan Poe series). This producer of 397 films (at the time of writing!) is capable of directing a feature film from start to finish in 3 days, and we are also indebted to him for launching the careers of Jack Nicholson (who testifies in this film), Joe Dante, Francis Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Monte Hellman and many other American cinema personalities.
A presentation of Corman’s World – Alex Stapleton’s Exploits of A Hollywood Rebel (2011). Roger Corman and Alex Stapleton will be present.
