083: Roger Corman Retrospective

Jardiel from Pulp Cereal joins us to ask a very important couple of questions.

Who is Roger Corman? What is his importance in the history of cinema?

Without giving too much detail away – we don’t want to spoil your enjoyment of the show – we will just say, that without Roger Corman, cinema would not be as we currently know it. Well known names such as James Cameron, Francis Ford Coppola, Jonathan Demme, Martin Scorsese and Jack Nicholson were given major opportunities by Mr Corman.

We discuss all aspects of Roger Corman’s prolific career with Jardiel. His early directing efforts in the 1950’s, his producing skills, the boundary pushes, bringing world cinema to America, the legendary Edgar Allan Poe features and, now in his nineties, his plans for making more entertainment for us! A man who should be spoken of in the same breath as Walt Disney.

And as an added bonus, there is Jeff’s much repeated story (to the rest of the team to the point of boredom), of how he thought he was going to die when he once watched a Roger Corman film.

However, centre stage this episode is Jardiel, who has a tremendous knowledge on this subject. But then Jardiel has a fantastic knowledge of all things Pulp – check out the links to his sites below.

So, sit back and listen to the story of one of the true geniuses of cinema.
