Storyline

Dick Miller is the last of the great American character actors. Whether sharing the screen with Nicholson, DeNiro, Schwarzenegger or The Ramones, Dick has been stealing scenes since his screen debut in 1955. He has worked with some of the great directors: Scorsese, Corman, Fuller, Dante, Cameron, Demme and more. Every moviegoer knows his face, but few know his name and even fewer know his story - an aspiring writer turned accidental actor. For the first time, Dick Miller has allowed filmmakers incredible access to his life and home for this funny and unexpected story. Joining him are the directors, producers, co-stars and friends who have helped make him Hollywood's leading "that guy". Written by Anonymous

Fun and charming film doc about a cult hero
27 June 2014 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

Like the title of this documentary picks up on, Dick Miller is an actor that loads of people say 'hey it's that guy, from…something else'. Most people don't know his name but sure as hell know his face. That's because he appeared in loads and loads of films, mostly in smaller parts and tended to make an impression because he was always good value. Well, the good news is that now we have this film, so no one has any excuse for not knowing what this guy's name is again!

Miller started out acting for Roger Corman in the 50's, starring in cult classics like A Bucket of Blood, he carried on appearing in an array of exploitation flicks throughout the 70's, hit the mainstream in the 80's in the films of Joe Dante and has continued knocking them out until the present day. This good natured documentary recounts Miller's career and includes lots of clips from the films he starred in. It also focuses on the many people he worked with too. The clips are a lot of fun and showcase the variety of flicks Miller was involved in, his body of work is bound to include a several films you will have seen before and it certainly will also have a few you haven't even heard of. Miller himself is a great guy and someone who is a lot of fun to spend a little time with, he is accompanied mostly by his long term wife Lainie Miller, who I was shocked to discover played the stunningly gorgeous stripper in The Graduate…oh yes indeed. On top of this we have several contributions from an array of other folks such as Corey Feldman, Fred Olen Ray and Mary Woronov, amongst many others. Overall, this is a fun, charming film biography. Even if you don't know much about Dick himself, give it a whirl anyway, you'll have a good time. Who's that guy? It's Dick Miller of course.
