The Death has been announced of Legendary Genre actor Dick Miller. Born in 1928 Millers breakthrough in acting was in the Roger Corman directed APACHE WOMAN in 1955 where he played both a townsperson and an Apache warrior ( this role became an infamous symbol of Cormans Low budget skill when Millers townsperson character kills his Apache character onscreen)
Miller would continue to work with Corman and AIP over the next two decades including It Conquered the World, A Bucket of Blood, The Little Shop of Horrors and Death Race 2000 among many others
But as miller worked with Corman , he also met the rising generation of filmmakers who would use him again and again in their later work films such as New York, New York , the Howling , 1941 and the Terminator. It was with Corman that Miller would meet Joe Dante, who would go on to use Miller in everyone of his films from Piranha to Gremlins, Gremlins 2 to The Hole. Miller lived long enough to see his life in film be made into a documentary "that guy Dick Miller" we all know Dick Milller , we have seen his face a hundred times be it in the movies or Television such as Star Trek , he really was "That Guy!"

Dick Miller was 90

RIP Dick. Always a pleasure seeing him pop up in all our favourite 80's movies. Now his appearances will have a touch of poignancy to them.
