Happy Birthday Roger Corman

I’ve always admired and been influenced by Roger Corman’s work, from his fascinating AIP era to his role as lo-fi avatar for a new generation of film-makers like Jack Nicholson, Martin Scorsese, Joe Dante, Jonathan Demme and so on. The only question I ever asked him was if there was any footage left from his original cut of GAS-S-S-S (1970), which sadly was missing in action. But Corman’s  legacy will spread like DNA through the ongoing history of cinema.
