The Corman-verse Blogathon Is Here – Day 1 Recap


The Corman-verse Blogathon

Welcome to the Corman-verse, a three-day blogging event, honoring legendary filmmaker Roger Corman! At age 96, Mr. Corman is still going strong, with more than 500 credits to his name, and a list of protégés longer than your arm. Yours Truly and my exceptional co-host, Gill Jacob of Realweegiemidget Reviews, are thrilled to present Day 1 of the Corman-Verse Blogathon, for your reading pleasure. We hope you’ll get a chance to revisit some old favorites, and discover a few new ones.
