GO-TO GUY: A SALUTE TO DICK MILLER

The name may not ring a bell, but the face surely will - Dick Miller is one of Hollywood’s favorite character actors. Born on Christmas Day, 1928, in the Bronx, Miller came to California to become a writer and wound up as an actor, appearing in more than 175 films beginning in 1955. As one of the busiest members of Roger Corman’s stock company, Miller made an indelible impression as homicidal sculptor Walter Paisley in A BUCKET OF BLOOD and as the flower-eating Burson Fouch in the original THE LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS.

Dick Miller’s scene-stealing skills did not go unnoticed by other directors. Corman alumnus James Cameron cast Miller in THE TERMINATOR, and Joe Dante has made it a point to use the actor in nearly all of his films; Miller’s supporting performance in Dante’s GREMLINS earned a Saturn Award nomination. Corman and Dante are just a few of the screen luminaries who sing the actor’s praises in THAT GUY DICK MILLER. The new documentary traces his still-ongoing career, from its beginnings in New York to today, using interviews, animated segments and rare film clips, and shows just why “that guy’s in everything!”

Series also includes GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH, TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT and WAR OF THE SATELLITES.

Series programmed by Grant Moninger. Program notes by John Hagelston.

We are thrilled to welcome Dick Miller to the Egyptian Theatre, along with other special guests!
