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.
If you’re planning to participate but not quite ready, never fear, we’ll post your link on Day Two or Three. Post a comment below, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or reach me on Twitter (@barry_cinematic). You may also contact Gill by commenting on her post, through her blog’s Contact Me page, or on Twitter (@realweegiemidge).
Without further preamble, here are Day 1’s submissions below, and don’t forget to return Friday and Saturday evening, for recaps of days two and three!
