Jonathan Haze, Jackie Joseph, Mel Welles, Dick Miller, Jack Nicholson Little Shop of Horrors is the classic1960 American comedy film directed by Roger Corman and written by Charles B. Griffith. The movie is a Farce about a goofy young florist’s assistant, Seymour who works at the Skid Row flower shop of Mr. Mushnick (Mel Welles). Experimenting in his spare time, Seymour cultivates a plant that feeds on human flesh & blood. Seymour hopes this experiment will lead him to fame & fortune. The hideous plant commands: “Feeed Me! Feeed Me please!” Before long, the luckless Seymour has fed his plant the bodies of a detective, a sadistic dentist, and a flashy trollop. Magically, when the plant blooms, the faces of its various victims are reproduced in its flowers. The film’s concept is based loosely on a 1932 story called “Green Thoughts”, by John Collier, about a man-eating plant. Ignored on its initial release, the film slowly gained a cult status through repeated black-and-white TV exposure in the early 60’s. The presence of a young Jack Nicholson attracts many viewers, who see the “acting rookie” like never before.
