Who is Jack Hill?
Quentin Tarantino described Jack Hill as “The Howard Hawks of exploitation filmmaking” in his introduction to the film Switchblade Sisters which his company Rolling Thunder Pictures re-released to cinemas and on DVD. Tarantino has also described Hill as “really great... a really, really talented man... I'm a big fan of his work”. Hill is now considered a living legend of the American exploitation film. His discoveries include Pam Grier, Sid Haig and Ellen Burstyn.
A full biography of his work, in which Hill was closely involved, is entitled Jack Hill: The Exploitation and Blaxploitation Master, Film by Film. It is written by British critic and documentarian Calum Waddell.
