Personal Quote:

[on making 1970s 'blaxplotation' films] You were working on pictures that the industry had nothing but contempt for. There was a lot of racism in the industry, a lot of it was under the surface, but it was here. And the executives at the studios really had contempt for the audience they were making movies for. It was an uphill struggle to try to do anything really good. See more »

Trivia:

After working with Jack Nicholson in The Terror (1963) he classed Jack as a terrible actor, but when he saw him in The Little Shop of Horrors (1960) he rethought his opinion - Jack had just been miscast in Roger Corman films. See more »
