He did series movies ("Voice of the Whistler," "The Crime Doctor's Warning"), many B movies ("Johnny Stool Pigeon), independents, lower-grade As, 3D movies ("Fort Ti"), and in the fifties, spear-and-sandal mini-epics ("Slaves of Babylon") and lots of Westerns ("Jesse James Vs. the Daltons," "The Law Vs. Billy the Kid"). But early on, he'd shown some flair for thrillers; his "When Strangers Marry" in 1944 was considered the model of a low-budget mystery. He also had an eye for exploitation; he wrote and directed "It's a Small World," about the trouble a midget had in a world of bigger people.

title: Frankenstein function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Universal Home Video MPAA rating: NR starring: Colin Clive, Mae Clarke, John Boles, Boris Karloff, Edward Van Sloan, Frederick Kerr, Dwight Frye, Lionel Belmore release year: 1931 film rating: Four and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren For years, Universal studios treated their classic horror films as something of an embarrassment. Sure, they made money whenever they were reissued, including on video, but the studio chiefs seemed to feel that they had risen above these classics -- which had saved the studio time and time again.

title: The Car function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: James Brolin, Kathleen Lloyd, John Marley, Ronny Cox, R.G. Armstrong, John Rubinstein release year: 1977 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren When it was first released in 1977, The Car was greeted with such hoots of critical derision and relatively little boxoffice returns that it pretty much killed the theatrical movie career of director Elliot Silverstein. He'd done some successful films, notably Cat Ballou and A Man Called Horse, but evidently The Car sent him back to television permanently.

title: Humanoids From The Deep function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: New Horizons Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Doug McClure, Ann Turkel, Vic Morrow, Cindy Weintraub, Anthony Penya, Denise Galic-Furey, Lynn Theel, Meegan King release year: 1980 film rating: Two stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Roger Corman established his own empire, first primarily as director, later primarily as producer. He knows how to market a film, and has little shame in promoting even the cheesiest of titles, but with his "Roger Corman Classics" series of DVDs, at first it seemed he really did intend to do special editions of the best movies he was associated with; among the earliest releases were 'Piranha' and 'Death Race 2000.'

title: Tenebrae function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Anthony Franciosa, John Saxon, Giuliano Gemma, Daria Nicolodi, Mirella D'Angelo, Veronica Lario, Christian Borromeo release year: 1982 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Anchor Bay Entertainment continues its practice of releasing cult-favorite horror and science fiction movies with this release of Dario Argento's Tenebrae, previously available in the U.S. only in a butchered version (18 minutes cut) under the title Unsane. The transfer is excellent, with the clear, brightly-lit but pastel colors of the film impressively intact. There's an alternate track in which journalist Loris Curci discusses the film with writer-director Argento and composer Claudio Simonetti, who worked several times with the director (previously as part of the group "Goblin"). One of the two behind-the-scenes sequences is particularly interesting, as it shows Argento and his crew using the versatile Louma crane during the shooting of the murder of the two lesbians.
