Noted for his keen ability to spot young talents, his most lasting legacy will undoubtedly be the legion of producers, directors, writers, and actors he has fostered, among them: Jack Nicholson, Francis Ford Coppola, Robert Denier, Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard and James Cameron. Starting in 2009, several of Corman’s movies will be "given the Bluewater treatment" under the title "Roger Corman Presents."
