Roger Corman will do anything for a gold doubloon
Deadly Movies Cameos | Roger Corman in ‘Sharktopus’ (2011)
There’s only one thing Roger Corman enjoys more than a cameo in one of his own productions, and that’s saving a buck. In the wonderfully (woefully?) titled ‘Sharktopus’ Corman gets to do both. Walking along a beach, exposing his old-man chest, Corman watches on as a blonde filly gets dragged into the brine by some awful CGI. Less bothered about the young lady’s fate, Corman turns his attention to a shiny coin that the ill-fated blonde had previously dug out of the sand. Why save a life when you can save a dollar? That’s how you get to be a movie producer. Watch the clip below taken for the Corman produced ‘Sharktopus‘, complete with director and producer commentary.
Clip comes courtasy of Anchor Bay’s ‘Sharktopus‘ DVD and Blu-ray release. Find it on March 15.
