The Pope of Pop Cinema

BYG5GlkCAAApjmgIt’s Roger Corman‘s world, we just live in it. This weekend the legendary director was given the George Eastman House award for distinguished contribution to the art of film (click on the pic to the left to get a better view of the happy recipient). He also found time to give this concise but nevertheless revealing interview to the UK film magazine Little White Lies.

Roger runs through some familiar tales but reveals some fascinating thoughts on working with the blacklisted cameraman, Floyd Crosby. As for his reputation as “King of the B’s”: “Well, it’s probably not as good as ‘Emperor of the As’. I’ve been called worse things and I’ve been called better things. I accept it. One of the best things I’ve been called is The Pope of Pop Cinema. That one I liked.”

We like it too.
