Joe Dante & Dick Miller – Gremlins, Twilight Zone, Howling – (Deadly Duos)

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

The late Dick Miller was one of the all-time greatest character actors. It was always a joy to see that guy show up on the screen, and someone who was very aware of just how great it was to watch Miller work is Joe Dante, who gave Miller a role in nearly everything he directed. Their collaborations included GREMLINS, GREMLINS 2, THE 'BURBS, PIRANHA, THE HOWLING, and many more. Dante and Miller made so many cool movies together, we decided to dig into their shared credits with an episode of our video series DEADLY DUOS.
