On this episode, I’m delighted to bring you an interview I recorded at the 2009 Festival of Fear with a man whose influence on American Cinema cannot be overstated.

In a career spanning nearly 7 decades, he’s produced close to 400 feature films and directed over 50. His Edgar Allan Poe adaptations starring Vincent Price are as quintessential to the genre as the Universal monster movies and the Hammer Horror Films.

In the 1970’s, his company New World Pictures became the largest independent producer/distributor in the U.S., releasing a full spectrum of theatrical features, everything from Candy Stripe Nurses and TNT Jackson to Ingmar Bergman’s Cries and Whispers.

He’s launched the careers of countless film professionals who went on to dominate the Hollywood industry after breaking their teeth on his low bugget productions

A brief excerpt of this interview ran on Rue Morgue Radio in 2010 but I’ve been saving the full one hour version for a very special occasion – and as this marks THE 100th EDITION OF THE RUE MORGUE PODCAST, I think that qualifies.

So here he is, a true living legend of American Cinema!

The King of the B’s himself.

Mr. Roger Corman!

Endure.

    I just got to listen to this at work. That’s great, great stuff from Mr. Corman. He’s so sharp and concise with his anecdotes I could listen to him all day.
