Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Bold in-person signature in blue felt-tip marker on a 3x5-inch white card, attained in the early 2000s. In very good condition and ideal for matting with a favorite photograph. Director and producer Roger Corman made his debut with Five Guns West and Apache Woman in 1955, and by 1960, was already a master of the low-budget exploitation field. His film versions of stories by Edgar Allan Poe, including The House of Usher (1960) and The Masque of the Red Death (1964), won him a cult following as a master of the macabre among horror, sci-fi and fantasy buffs, as have The Day the World Ended (1955), It Conquered the World (1956), Not of This Earth (1957), Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957), A Bucket of Blood (1959), The Wasp Women (1959), Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959), X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes (1963), Dementia 13 (1963), and The Dunwich Horror (1970). In 1970, he formed New World Pictures, an independent distribution company that produced the work of such struggling young directors as Peter Bogdanovich, Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese.
