Exclusive: Roger Corman on Spare-Time Filmmaking and Working With Jack Nicholson
When you've had a career as long and varied as Roger Corman, you are bound to have more than a few fantastic anecdotes. We were lucky enough to interview Corman to help promote his Drive-In subscription on YouTube and he shared with us this wonderful story about how he shot The Terror, one of Jack Nicholson's earliest film roles. The film came about because his tennis date got rained out and he needed something to fill his day with - so he and Leo Gordon wrote what would become The Terror. Look for "cameos" by Nicholson and Francis Ford Coppola in his story!
