In 1960, Cuban photographer Alberto Korda captured a photo of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara during a mass funeral. History conspired to enable this dynamic portrait to explode on the world scene in 1968 throughout Europe and Latin America, when it became an international symbol of protest and dissent. In the last decade, with the establishment of the Internet, the image has once again travelled the globe in many forms. From protest to commerce, it is constantly transformed and reinvented. It is considered to be the most reproduced image in the history of photography.

Features brand new interviews with Costner and his crew bringing viewers inside the tumultuous story of Dances with Wolves.

This is the story of the low budget, schlock-horror and B movie maestro who spawned a whole generation of American film talent. They all line up to tell anecdotes and reminisce on their formative experiences under Corman's protective wing; Jack Nicholson, Martin Scorsese, Peter Fonda, Joe Dante, Ron Howard, Jonathan Demme and Bruce Dern are among the stars to contribute. Although Corman's films were never tasteful and always cheap, he is a central figure in American movie history and this documentary is an entertaining and amusing paean to the films and to the man who has resolutely remained true to his roots outside of the mainstream and firmly within the exploitation movie genre.

The First Fagin recreates Ikey's journey from London's dens of vice, Newgate jail, and the notorious prison "hulks" on the Thames to a daring escape to the new world of America. Ikey then tempted fate by sailing to Tasmania in search of his wife who had been transported as a convict.
