The Movie: Little Shop of Horrors (1960)
What Is It?: Roger Corman’s funniest movie was shot in about two minutes for the cost of a donut…and that’s 1960 donut prices, which means the donut dealer actually paid you to buy his donuts! Corman made the most of his teensy shooting schedule and budget with an outrageous yet endearing tale of a boy’s love of a girl and a houseplant’s love of eating people.
Why Today?: On this day in 1926, Roger Corman is born. May he never die.
