Pubs and Clubs of the Black Smoke + Q+A with Arnold Miller

Best known for his work in sexploitation, film director, producer and writer Arnold L. Miller looks back at a twenty five-year career in the movie-making industry, as part of the BFI's popular Flipside strand, including his origins in comic book publishing with his father, to his move into men's magazine publishing with Photo Studio. Miller reveals how advice from Nat Miller, that the key to success was to be "cheaper and different", led to 1960's Nudist Memories and a subsequent run of exploitation cinema. With anecdotes of run-ins with the censors and scenes too extreme for the viewing public, the director provides fascinating insights into an infamous filmmaking career.
