Roger Corman
Film: North side of the 7000 block of Hollywood Boulevard
Director | Producer | Writer
Born April 5, 1926 in Detroit, Mich.

Described as "The King of the B's," Roger Corman built a reputation for making films quickly and cheaply — as a director, he'd complete films in only 10 days. In the case of 1960's "The Little Shop of Horrors," he shot it in two.

By 2006, the maverick filmmaker had amassed a staggering 377 producing credits over the past half-century, according to the Internet Movie Database.

"That would be roughly right," Corman affirmed. "Probably it would be a little more than that because sometimes I do co-productions, or I work with younger people in the office. I give them the credit because I don't need one more credit which could help a younger person."

[He received an honorary Oscar in 2009.]
