Happy Birthday Francis Ford Coppola! Watch His Wild Early Movie 'Dementia 13' For Free

7 April 2014 12:41 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Francis Ford Coppola, who turns 75 today, is a paragon of artistic integrity in a commercial industry. Though many associate his name with big Hollywood success, he’s actually better defined as a low-budget guru and proponent of creative risk-taking. Coppola worked his way to the top. Hired as an assistant by Roger Corman fresh out of film school, Coppola demonstrated extraordinary zeal and perseverance on and off the set. Corman, increasingly impressed with Coppola’s efforts, continued to afford him opportunities to prove himself. On location in Ireland in 1963, Coppola found himself in possession of $40,000 in leftover funds from one of Corman’s films. With Corman’s blessings, the enterprising young filmmaker wrote a feature film overnight and directed it over the next nine days. The product was “Dementia 13,” which recouped its expenses at the box office and remains a cult horror classic today. Taxing circumstances became emblematic of Coppola’s career. »
