Allan Arkush on

Eat My Dust

Released 1976
Distributor New World Pictures

First in the New World smashathon car chase series, made economically to say the least by vet Corman scribe Chuck Griffith. The ensuing wave of drive-in car crash pictures filled LA’s junkyards to overflowing with twisted metal. Allan lets us in on the secrets of New World trailerizing.

About Allan Arkush

A record collector and film buff from his early days, Allan Arkush brought his two loves together in directing the cult classic Rock ‘n’ Roll High School. Allan’s day job is directing and executive producing television series like Heroes, The Client List and Crossing Jordan.  He has also directed episodes of Ally McBeal, Moonlighting and many other tv series as well as the mini-series, The Temptations, for which he won an Emmy. He wishes that someone would release his 1997 Showtime movie Elvis Meets Nixon on DVD.
