A Bucket of Blood: Screening and Book Launch: ‘You Don’t Know Me, But You Love Me’

Fri, Oct 19 / 7 pm
Directed by Roger Corman
1959, USA, 66 min

Introduced by Caelum Vatnsdal.

A special launch of a new biography of the legendary American actor Dick Miller, You Don’t Know Me, But You Love Me, followed by a special screening of one of his best loved movies -Roger Corman’s A Bucket of Blood. Shot in 5 days for $50,000 A Bucket of Blood features Dick Miller as a busboy at a Beatnik café who aspires to be an artist. He accidentally kills his landlady’s cat, covers its body in clay to hide the evidence, and is soon acclaimed as a great artist. Dick Miller was a master American character actor, appearing in The Terminator, The Howling, The Wild Angels, New York, New York, After Hours, Piranha, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School, Gremlins, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. He was a favourite character actor of Quentin Tarantino and in the words of Jonathan Demme, a “first-rate actor who makes any scene he’s in better.”

The result of several years of extensive interviews and exhaustive research by author Caelum Vatnsdal,  You Don’t Know Me, But You Love Me is at once story of how an unassuming guy stumbled into acting and became cult royalty. Caelum Vatnsdal is the well respected author of Kino Delerium: The Films of Guy Maddin and They Came From Within: A History of Canadian Horror Cinema.

Reviews

A Bucket of Blood is my favorite film directed by Roger Corman....brilliant dark satire. The story, humor and especially the acting are all superb. Dick Miller really shines in what I consider to be his best performance.
