What do all these Hollywood icons have in common?

Roger Corman gave them their first shot in the pictures.

A living legend at 85, he’s produced nearly 400 films and directed more
than 50.

In this documentary, you will get many testimonials from people like Paul W.S. Anderson, Peter Bogdanovich, Robert De Niro, Peter Fonda, Pam Grier, Ron Howard, Eli Roth, Martin Scorsese, William Shatner and Jack Nicholson. Talking up the greatness of this man and what he means to each and everyone one of them.

Being a fan of the Grindhouse genre, I always wanted to know how he could
manage to churn out so many movies in such a short period of time or how
he had this uncanny ability to find great talents and nurture said talents
and gave them the knowledge and tools to be who they became.

All will be revealed in this long overdue tribute to the man and his legacy.
