Ive been a closet fan of Dick Miller for years-there was a time when you couldn't watch a cult movie without seeing the great man popping up somewhere or other.
I was watching Evil Toons last night,and was surprised to think nobody seems to have ever started a thread on this underrated actor.Time to put that one straight.
Sadly I have not seen him in anything since Joe dantes loony toons-back in action,hell he has not even been in anything done by Joe since,(and his meant to be his lucky charm).
MY FAVE TOP 5 DICK MILLER CAMEOS.
1.The bookshop owner in the howling.his favorite).
2.The terminator-he sells Arnie his first oozie 9 millimeter. Does this mean James Cameron's a fan.
3.Dead Heat-yes he was in this,his cameo as a security guard was sadly deleted but can be found on the region 1 dvd.Ironically for years I wondered why he had not cameoed in it,the film was tailor made for a miller cameo.So that deleted scene was a nice surprise.
4.Evil Toons-Just because I can.
5.Demon Night-That scene with Dick and all those topless women must have been a reward by the gods of filmmakers for all his entertaining cameos over the years.seriously,his cameos have even made bad movies entertaining.
Anyone else as amazed as I was to see a deleted scene on the pulp fiction dvd with dick miller and Harvey.Why the hell did that get cut out.
Makes me wonder how many cameos his been cut out of over his long career.
Anyone else here a fan of Dick?-(add your own gag here).
