Happy 100th Birthday, Sam Fuller

Born on August 12, 1912: one of this blog's all-time favorites, - journalist, iconoclast, outspoken individualist and pioneering independent filmmaker Samuel Fuller. Enjoy the following 1990 interview with one of the great directors.

And since that interview isn't nearly enough, here are some clips from Adam Simon's 1996 documentary about Mr. Fuller's prolific career in movies, The Typewriter, The Rifle And The Movie Camera.

We'll celebrate Sam's centennial and close out this blog entry with trailers from several of his provocative and startlingly original films.
