Chances are slim that you’ve heard of movies like The Terror, Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women, and Fighting Mad. These early works — by Coppola, Bogdanovich, and Demme — share one common trait: they were all produced by low-budget impresario and master talent scout Roger Corman. This past Sunday, the King of the Bs (as he’s known) was officially elevated to A-list status — alongside Lauren Bacall, no less — when the Academy awarded him an honorary Oscar. Want to see how he earned it? Check out Saga of the Viking Women, Rock All Night, Teenage Caveman, and the seriously strange Undead, on BMC, AMC’s Website devoted to B-movie classics.
