Lone Star Film Society presents ArthouseFW: The Shooting
The ArthouseFW - Students of Roger Corman series explores the direct influence of B-movie master and iconic independent producer Roger Corman on a younger generation of filmmakers whose work would carry on Corman's innovative spirit to independent film and Hollywood studios alike. The series follows these "students" through the decades, as they adapt Corman's pioneering sense of filmmaking into definitive careers of their own.
After working on Back Door to Hell and Flight to Fury, Monte Hellman's relationship with Corman and Jack Nicholson enabled him to direct a celebrated genre-defying western titled The Shooting. Starring Warren Oates, Will Hutchins and Jack Nicholson, and written by Carole Eastman, The Shooting was a film that pushed the western genre into more heady territory and defined the celebrated director's early career.
