You will believe : the cinematic saga of Superman( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With input from all the heavy hitters aboard the Superman pictures, such as producers Ilya Salkind and Pierre Spengler, director Richard Donner and stars Margot Kidder, Terence Stamp, Helen Slater and Jackie Cooper, the documentary explored the views of why the series couldn't seem to come together. This was a view seen by many working on the project as a result of Richard Donner, the director of Superman: The Movie (1978), being fired from directing Superman II. Without his input the tone of the franchise shifted and with each entry some of the magic started to disappear. You Will Believe didn't take sides on the situation, and instead used interviews from all concerned to let the words as to why this happened, speak for themselves.. It was believed that the Salkind's approach to tightening and reducing budgets was to blame at times, and that this caused major friction with Donner. You Will Believe didn't do anything to dispel this, in fact, it showed how respected Donner was by all who worked for him and how ultimately the problems facing the franchises' implosion really did come down to too many people getting involved and trying to cut corners instead of leaving the project alone. Even though the Superman films were only a shadow of what they could have been, the documentary showed how beloved the first couple were, with Terence Stamp demonstrating how much he clearly reveled in his role as General Zod. By talking to the people involved throughout the films varied history, it also managed to gage the scope of the franchise, and how something with such potential could be continually steered in the wrong direction. It was a shame that Christopher Reeve had died by the time the documentary was produced as his input would have been the icing on the cake, as after all he was Superman. Still, what remains is that You Will Believe showcases what can happen for better or worse when people do believe in something

Roger Corman : interviews by Roger Corman( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Roger Corman (b. 1926) is known by many names-craftsman, artist, maverick, schlock-meister, mini-mogul, mentor, cheapskate, and King of the B's. Yet his commitment to filmmaking remains inspired. He learned his craft at the end of the studio system, only to rebel against Hollywood and define himself as the true independent. And the list of directors and producers who learned under his tutelage--Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, James Cameron, Jonathan Demme, and many more--is astonishing. Collected here are many of the most honest and revealing interviews of his epic career, several of which have never been seen in print. Roger Corman: Interviews brings into focus a life committed to the entertaining art of motion pictures. Corman's rare talent combined artistic drive with business savvy, ensuring a successful career that was constantly in motion. At a remarkable pace more akin to silent movies than modern Hollywood, he directed over fifty films in less than fifteen years, some entertaining (Not of This Earth), trendsetting (The Wild Angels), daring (The Intruder), workmanlike (Apache Woman), stylized (The Masque of the Red Death) and even profound (X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes). In a single year, Corman famously shot a cult classic in two and a half days (The Little Shop of Horrors), reinvigorated the American horror film with a dash of Poe and Price (House of Usher)--and still turned out a few more films shot across the globe. Recently awarded an honorary Oscar for his lifetime contribution to cinema, the self-made Corman has created a legacy as a defining filmmaker
