IBNA- A biographical book, 'How I Made A Hundred Movies In Hollywood And Never Lost A Dime' by noted American director Roger Corman and Jim Jerome has been published in Persian.
According to IBNA correspondent, the translator of the book into Persian Maryam Amini says that she has intended to introduce Roger Corman who is almost unknown in Iran to Persian language movie buffs. The book has been released by Vahe publishing in Tehran.
In 'How I Made A Hundred Movies', Roger Corman, the most successful independent filmmaker in Hollywood relates his experiences as the director and/or producer of such low-budget classics ‘Attack of the Crab Monsters’, ‘The Little Shop of Horrors’, ‘The Raven’, ‘The Man with the X-ray Eyes’, ‘The Wild Angels’, ‘The Trip’, ‘Night Call Nurses’, ‘Bloody Mama’, ‘Piranha’, and many others.
He also discusses his distribution of the Bergman, Fellini, and Truffaut movies that later won Academy Awards in the Best Foreign Film category. Corman alumni—John Sayles, Martin Scorsese, Jack Nicholson, Vincent Price, Francis Ford Coppola, Peter Bogdanovich, Peter Fonda, Joe Dante, and Jonathan Demme, among others—contribute their recollections to give added perspective to Corman's often hilarious, always informative autobiography.
'How I Made A Hundred Movies In Hollywood And Never Lost A Dime' in Persian has been published in 392 pages and 1000 copies.
