Roger Corman Directs! Rare Behind The Scenes Footage!

19 days to go and just over 30% funded. We need more help. In hopes of wetting your appetites further, I have assembled some of Dick's behind-the-scenes 8mm footage from of A TIME FOR KILLING (1967), a Civil War-era action film about a group of Confederate soldiers who escape for the Mexican border. The film was begun by Roger Corman, but finished by director Phil Karlson. Never released on DVD, this film begs to be re-discoverd. And I think you will agree after you see this clip. Dick co-stars with an incredible cast, many of whom you will see playing around on set, including Glenn Ford, Harry Dean Stanton, Inger Stevens, Timothy Carey and George Hamilton. You'll also see a tall, lanky Corman in a white cowboy hat with black sunglasses setting up shots and blocking scenes for actors.

I hope that you find this rare footage as historically important as I do. It offers a rare glimpse of Corman in action and the camaraderie of actors on - what looked to be - a fun set. Enjoy. And thank you all for your continued support.

      Sweet! I honestly can't wait to see your film; it's the very least Dick deserves for all he's done for us!

      Glad you liked it Marisa! We have more behind-the-scenes stuff from other movies and more from this film too.
