Includes Special Guest Appearance and Q&A by Subject Dick Miller!
Directed by Elijah Drenner
Dick Miller is the last of the great American character actors. Whether sharing the screen with Nicholson, DeNiro, Schwarzenegger or The Ramones, Dick has been stealing scenes since his screen debut in 1955. He has worked with some of the great directors: Scorsese, Corman, Fuller, Dante, Cameron, Demme and more. Every moviegoer knows his face, but few know his name and even fewer know his story; an aspiring writer turned accidental actor. For the first time, Dick Miller has allowed filmmakers incredible access to his life and home for this funny and unexpected story. Joining him are the directors, producers, co-stars and friends who have helped make him Hollywood’s leading “that guy”.
To Be Followed by Special Screening of “Bucket of Blood” starring Dick Miller!
What the Critics Are Saying:
“What elevates Drenner’s film is an understanding of the irreverent tone needed to appreciate its subject. The doc about Dick Miller is as fun as most of the movies he’s made throughout his illustrious career.”
–Brian Tallerico, Film Threat
“Gives us a deeper look at a man who was all about the work and staying a working stiff as long as he can, it just turns out that he’s better at it than most.”
