Girls, Guns and Big Bad Monsters: The King of BMovies Roger Corman

It may sound like a backhanded compliment to be called the King of the B-Movie, but Roger Corman is a Hollywood giant. He’s credited with kick starting the careers of John Landis, James Cameron, Frances Ford Coppola, Ron Howard and Martin Scorsese.

He’s been making films for over 50 years, much of which has gained critical acclaim and in the words of his autobiography, he’s made over 100 Hollywood movies ‘and never lost a dime’.

All this and said movies are the absolute top end of trash, ranging from Women in Cages (1971) to Rock n Roll High School (1979) by way of Night Call Nurses (1972).

There’s a great new photo-led book dedicated to Corman and his work, which features extensive posters and stills from the film and an introduction from his former student, Landis.

If nothing else, it might provide inspiration for artwork to liven up your living space.

Crab Monsters, Teenage Caveman and Candy Stripe Nurses: Roger Corman: King of the B-Movies is out in September on Abrams. Pre-order It here
