James Cameron was an art director for a few Roger Corman pics before he got
bumped up to director. I'm pretty sure this is accurate info, but it's based
on my memory of an interview I read years ago - probably in the _LA Weekly_.
Again the source is hazy. I don't remember if he directed for Corman or if
his directing break came from elsewhere.

Hope this helps you find your research track.

Hi everyone.  I'm new to the list and have a couple of questions for you.

1) Does anybody know what James Cameron was doing (films, projects) before
exploding onto the cinema scene with "The Terminator"?

2) Is "The Magic Box" available on video?  Can the rights be paid for it to
shown on a college campus?  Does anyone know which company may be the
distributor for it?

Thanx for your input.
