Roger Corman's quotes
- In science-fiction films, the monster should always be bigger than the leading lady.
- I think there is always a political undercurrent in my films. With the exception of The Stranger (1962), I tried not to put it on the surface.
- All my films have been concerned simply with man as a social animal.
- I've never made the film I wanted to make. No matter what happens, it never turns out exactly as I hoped.
- Horror films always do well. But in cycles. One horror film will do well, and people will make lots of horror films, saturate the market until there are too many horror films and people will slow down making horror films. And then it'll start up again.
- [on Martin Scorsese preferring The Wild Angels (1966) to Ingmar Bergman's Wild Strawberries (1957)] I think Marty sometimes says things just to startle people. But we can certainly agree that 'Wild Angels' had more action than 'Wild Strawberries'.
- The myth that when I was directing that I was always printing the first take. I would generally go two, three, four takes. First take is generally not exactly what you're looking for.
