A Minute With: Roger Corman, “Hollywood Rebel”

At this time of year Hollywood brings out big-budget movies like "Mission: Impossible" with Tom Cruise and the new "Sherlock Holmes" film starring Robert Downey, Jr.

But Roger Corman, the antithesis of big Hollywood who has made low-budget, independent films for 60 years, will also have his say. He is the subject of a new documentary, "Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel," which will be in U.S. theaters on Friday

Corman, 85, has produced about 550 movies and directed 50 more, including "The Wild Angels" and "Little Shop of Horrors," and lesser known movies like "The Terror" and "Naked Angels."

His New World Pictures became a hotbed for up-and-coming directors and actors including Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard, John Sayles and Jack Nicholson.

Corman spoke to Reuters about movies, how Steven Spielberg impacted his career and smoking pot with the Hell's Angels.
