Dick Miller in Gremlins

Warner Bros.

For this loving spoonful of Junkfood Cinema, Cargill and I find ourselves in the presence of true greatness. During SXSW, we were able to sit down with actor/writer/genre mainstay Dick Miller. Not familiar with Dick Miller? Actually, we’re willing to bet Mogwais to Terminators that you ARE familiar with Dick Miller, though likely by face moreso than name. He has been appearing in films for nearly six decades, and has the type of career that actually charts a direct line through the history of film itself. Whether working with Corman on movies like A Bucket of Blood, Rock All Night, and Piranha, his various team-ups with Joe Dante, or any of the other innumerable cult classics that comprise his resume, Dick Miller is the very essence of a living legend.

His importance to genre and cult cinema are not merely the opinion of these Junkfood Cinema hosts. That Guy Dick Miller, a documentary about the life and career of our special guest, just played SXSW. The doc finds some of the biggest names in the industry reminiscing about the silver-screen splendor of Mr. Miller.
