Beverly Gray: Roger Corman

Wednesday, January 29, 2014 - 3:00pm

Tonight on Inquiry we welcome journalist, teacher, screenwriter and story editor BEVERLY GRAY. She talks about the latest edition of her wonderful biography ROGER CORMAN: BLOOD-SUCKING VAMPIRES, FLESH-EATING COCKROACHES AND DRILLER KILLERS. Roger Corman specialized in making films that elevated the exploitation genre, films like Little Shop of Horrors and The Trip. He made them fast and he made them cheaply. Beverly Gray worked for Roger Corman in a number of different jobs and has written an incredible insiders look at this legendary director and producer who in turn worked with luminaries like Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard, John Sayles, Jack Nicholson and Peter Fonda. Tonight is part one of our conversation and we concentrate on Corman’s formative years working for American International Pictures. Shown is a still of Jack Nicholson in Little Shop of Horrors.
