Here’s the set-up:

Roger Corman reigns as the godfather of independent filmmaking. Since 1954, Corman has produced four-hundred-plus movies on shoestring budgets, making a profit on nearly every one. Filling his frames with blood-sucking vampires, rampaging biker gangs, vigilante strippers, and abducting aliens, he has shown the world how to blend action, sex, humor, and social message into hip entertainments. He has also demonstrated an uncanny eye for talent, jumpstarting the Hollywood careers of Jack Nicholson, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Jonathan Demme, and James Cameron, to name just a few. Over the past half-century, Corman has evolved into as a role model for independent-minded filmmakers. Thanks to a campaign spearheaded by alumni of what’s often called “The Roger Corman Graduate School of Film,” he was honored with an Oscar statuette in 2009. It was an fitting valedictory, but Roger himself is still going strong, churning out monster movies and updated versions of old-school exploitation flicks.

Beverly Gray, Corman’s story editor for nearly a decade, learned from the master how to tell a lively tale. Through far-reaching conversations with over one hundred of her fellow Cormanites, she takes you behind the cameras for an insider’s look at the man and the mogul. The result is a rich portrait of this soft-spoken showbiz giant, whose genial manner masks a complex psyche.

The new ebook edition of Gray’s now-classic Roger Corman: Blood-Sucking Vampires, Flesh-Eating Cockroaches, and Driller Killers has been fully updated, bringing the Corman saga into the present day. Previously suppressed material has been restored, and a new collection of photographs enhances this edition.

One Reviewer Notes:

Gray’s sensitive combination of scholarly detachment and firsthand observation have made [Corman] come alive in all his wily brilliance.
