Roger Corman

The king of the B-movies. I've only seen one, even though there are zillions.

The Little Shop of Horrors (1960) -- The original, one of the great B-movies. The main thing this has going for it is the one-after-the-other jokes. The first time I saw it on TV, I pulled out my notebook and started writing down the jokes so I could share them with friends, until I realized there were too many and I'd just have to watch it with them. The end of the movie sags a bunch, falling into a typical 1960s goofy movie, but most of it makes up for this sag, and besides it was made in two days. You might see Jack Nicholson on the box as the star, but he's not--he plays the part that Bill Murray would play in the musical remake. B
