     Did'ja ever sit there, watching a favorite piece of cinecheese for the fifty-lebenth time, and wonder what it must have been like, to be part of the cast or crew?

     Were you envious?
Me, I would've liked to work for either Corman or Wood in the 50's, as one of the cast-just the sheer audacity of some of those films, it must have been a hoot!

     What about you?

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

Hmmm.

If I'm restricted to b-movies, I'll agree to the original post, and add some more:

Jesus Franco: I imagine being around all of those lovely loose 70's Euro-babes enough times would eventually lead to getting lucky.

Sam Raimi: for a number of reasons, not the least of which is being in the presence of Bruce Campbell in his cheesy prime.

Don Coscarelli: Similar to Sam Raimi. Bonus: working with Coscarelli gets me not only working with Bruce Campbell again (Bubba Ho-Tep), but several time with the great Angus Scrimm.

Coleman Francis - because I really would like to have even the slightest insight as to what was going on inside his head.

Mario Bava - he had such a great visual flair

It probably would've been cool to work for Wood, too; at least I bet there was never a dull moment!

.Al Adamson-not only would I have been able to meet Lon Chaney,John Carradine,Angelo Rossito,J.Carrol Naish,Kenneth Strickfadden (the fx man behind the original FRANKENSTEIN-who loaned some of his old electrical Telsa coils to Al)-but he just seems like a nice guy-and it looks like it would have been FUN.

Small | Large


.Tod Browning-To work with my hero-(Bela-duh!  Lookingup) in his prime. Also Lon Chaney Sr! A Master!
And the charming Caroll Borland.
To be on the set of MARK OF THE VAMPIRE-wow. As much as I love the original DRACULA-Browning should have done the second half of it(the talky,stagey scenes in London) more atmosphiric-much like the mood in MARK OF THE VAMPIRE-even though Lugosi has limited screen time-and no dialouge (with the exception of the final scene.

WARNING! If you havn't seen the film-this clip contains a spoiler at the end!

Small | Large


And I'd have been on the set of LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT,FREAKS,the UNKNOWN,the SHOW,the DEVIL DOLL-! Heck-all the way back to the early days of cinema-(1915 to be exact.)  That would be something to experiance!

To paraphrase Dracula -That would be glorious!

My first reaction is Alfred Hitchcock, but apparently he did not work well with Actors, althought that may be a over exaggeration from people he did just not get along with. If however that is true, then definatly quentin tarantino in Pulp fiction, not only is that movie awesome but the cast had a lot off fun on set, like all quentin tarantino movies. =)

If we're not limited to B-movie people then I'll add William Wyler, Tarantino (on the set of any movie but Death Proof) and Guillermo Del Toro. 
And I would take any job, any job at all, on the set of COOL HAND LUKE.  Mmmmmm, 1960s Paul Newman.........

John Carpenter
David Cronenberg

Stuart Gordon on RE-ANIMATOR...I bet that set was a blast.  "You want me to do WHAT?" was probably heard by more than one crew member on more than one occasion...   Cheers

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
