9 Smuggler Part 1 - Martin Scorsese - A Personal Journey Through American Movies (1995)

"What slips through the cracks has always fascinated me ... [40's B-Movie directors] had less money, more freedom ... they could introduce unusual touches, weave unexpected motifs and even transform routine material into a much more personal expression, so in a sense they became smugglers. They cheated and somehow got away with it." Martin Scorsese
