Repressed Cinema: A Bucket of Blood

Ian Sundahl dedicates this month's entry in his ongoing showcase of rare 16mm delights to the memory of character actor Dick Miller with a screening of the 1959 Roger Corman classic A Bucket of Blood. Miller, perhaps the most "that guy" of all the "that guys" in Hollywood history, is primarily recognized for his brief-yet-memorable roles in Joe Dante's '80s adventures (Mr. Futterman in Gremlins, Vic the Garbage Man in The Burbs), and for getting shot by Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Terminator. But Corman found Miller first, and gave him the rare starring role in this breakout black comedy, mocking celebrity, the art community, and beatnik culture. Also, Miller gets to kill Bert Convy with a frying pan. It's a great way to remember one of the industry's hardest-working actors.
