Allan Arkush on

Grand Theft Auto

Released 1977
Distributor New World Pictures

Ron Howard’s smashing, crashing directorial debut is a family affair with relatives, friends and co-workers pitching in to provide producer Roger Corman with one of his most successful car crash drive-in movies ever. Allan and Joe worked behind the camera on this one, along with a lot of other New World regulars both on and offscreen.

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.
