Director Alex Stapleton's 2011 feature-length documentary about US exploitation movie producer, director Roger Corman, titled "Corman's World" will be released by Anchor Bay Entertainment, March 26, 2012 :

" jeans, sock-hops and drive-in movies: the Fifties were America’s age of innocence. But stalking the depths of its post-nuclear bliss, mass paranoia became fuel for Joseph McCarthy’s brand of Red Scare terror propaganda. Bomb shelters were a deluxe feature in every American home, government-sponsored educational reels promised an imminent nuclear threat from across the Atlantic and Hollywood, Babylon of the western world, hung on the brink of collapse.

"It was here, in the last-ditch machinations of a dying juggernaut, that a mild-mannered, civil engineer’s son would become an influential force in modern moviemaking..."

Interviews include Corman alumni Martin Scorsese ("Boxcar Bertha"), Jack Nicholson, Jonathan Demme, Robert Deniro, Peter Fonda ("The Wild Angels") , Bruce Dern, David Carradine ("Death Race") , Pam Grier, Catherine Hardwicke, Eli Roth and Paul W.S. Anderson.
