I listened to this track following "Pit and the Pendulum." This commentary surpasses that one in breadth and insight. There is so much that Roger reveals about the early days, making studio films for American International, and how they would differ from his later, "Outdoor" pictures. Any time Old greats in the industry start talking "Drive-Ins" versus "Hardtops," I'm always "all ears." I was fascinated to learn about topics from post-modern art, to Cinemascope and method acting. In addition to these topics, Mr. Corman talks about his unique "Storyboarding" technique that derived from his schooling in Engineering. All this in 80 minutes running time. 8/10
