The Movie Crypt

Sep 18, 2023

PUBLIC VERSION. Filmmaker Lewis Teague (CUJO, ALLIGATOR, CAT’S EYE, THE JEWEL OF THE NILE) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen in the ArieScope studio to discuss his 60 year career so far! From the Sam Fuller war film that inspired his curiosity in filmmaking… to starting an underground Cinema on the Sunset strip in the 60’s… to working in various capacities on films like George Roy Hill’s HAWAII (1966) and the seminal documentary WOODSTOCK (1970)… to working with the legendary Roger Corman… to how he brought realism to genre films like ALLIGATOR (1980) and working on back to back Stephen King adaptations with CUJO (1983) and CAT’S EYE (1985)… to getting the call from Michael Douglas to join the big leagues and direct 1985’s THE JEWEL OF THE NILE (the ROMANCING THE STONE sequel)… and how a fateful lunch with a certain PSYCHO star changed his entire outlook on the filmmaking business. At 85 years old, Lewis has tons of incredible stories about his Hollywood journey!
