CRAB MONSTERS, TEENAGE CAVEMEN AND CANDY STRIPE NURSES: ROGER CORMAN -- KING OF THE B MOVIE. Chris Nashawaty. Abrams, New York, 2013. 272 pp. with 370 ills. (305 col.). 29 x 21 cm. LC 2013-935759 ISBN 9781419706691 In English.
Publisher's description: An outrageously rollicking account of the life and career of Roger Corman -- one of the most prolific and successful independent producers, directors, and writers of all time, and self-proclaimed king of the B-movie. As told by Corman himself and graduates of "The Corman Film School," including Peter Bogdanovich, James Cameron, Francis Ford Coppola, Robert De Niro, and Martin Scorsese, this comprehensive oral history takes readers behind the scenes of more than six decades of American cinema, as now-legendary directors and actors candidly unspool recollections of working with Corman, continually one-upping one another with tales of the years before their big breaks. Crab Monsters is supplemented with dozens of full-color reproductions of classic Corman movie posters; behind-the-scenes photographs and ephemera (many taken from Corman's personal archive); and critical essays on Corman's most daring films -- including The Intruders, Little Shop of Horrors, and The Big Doll House -- that make the case for Corman as an artist like no other.
