That guy from the title, Dick Miller. He’s the one the uninitiated may regard as “that secondary role guy of whom I can’t remember his name but I know his face”, yet the dickmillerians praise every time he appears. His name and presence have been associated to films worthy of celebration: those of Joe Dante and Roger Corman. Miller, a cinema working man for sixty years, worked with many other directors but for these two he stood as a key, a resisting token –Gremlins, Little Shop of Horrors, Small Soldiers, A Bucket of Blood, and so many others. Working in cinema, his aspirations, his friends (yes, Dante and Corman are among the interviewed), and his life in Hollywood without being a star: decades of films, comedy, and a lucid take on the industry. Elijah Drenner’s documentary is not just a portrait of someone we always wanted to know more of, but also one of those pieces that provide us with enjoyable knowledge. That Guy Dick Miller will also introduce us with the lovely Mrs. Miller. JPF
