#Newoirvember continues with Part 2 of our 3-part conversation with producer and director Donald P. Borchers, who produced both ANGEL and CHILDREN OF THE CORN for New World Pictures and helped get the post-Corman era off to a good start. In this episode, we discuss Ken Russell’s CRIMES OF PASSION, which Borchers produced and discuss how the film almost had a monkey wearing a diaper in it, the bargaining with the MPAA, and how Donald slipped the change of Anthony Perkins’s character to a priest past the New World brass. We also discuss ANGEL, including the casting, the original ending, Andrew Davis’s (THE FUGITIVE) contributions and more. We end with 1985’s TUFF TURF, what inspired the film, Robert Downey Jr., the dance sequence, Madonna, and the secret, uncut version only Donald owns! This is an interview you don’t want to miss!
