I had perfect suspension of disbelief—really, it transported me when I was eight years old. I was on the beach, fleeing the dragon and battling the Cyclops. It simply enchanted me, and I purchased it wholeheartedly. As a result, I sat through it twice and questioned my mother when I got home, “Who is it that does that? Who is the director of the film?”

John Landis  Career

Landis got his start in the film industry as a mailman for 20th Century Fox. During the filming of MGM’s Kelly’s Heroes in Yugoslavia in 1969, he worked as a “go-fer” and subsequently as an assistant director, replacing the film’s original assistant director, who grew unwell and was sent home. During this time, Landis met actors Don Rickles and Donald Sutherland, who would later work with him on his films. Following Kelly’s Heroes, Landis worked on a number of European films, including Once Upon a Time in the West, El Condor, and A Town Called Bastard, all of which were shot in Europe (particularly Italy and the United Kingdom) (a.k.a. A Town Called Hell). Landis performed as a stunt double as well.

I worked on a variety of films, including pirate films. Foreign films made in France. I worked on the film Red Sun, in which Toshiro Mifune kills me by stabbing me with a sword. I used to work as a stuntman. I was a dialogue coach at the time. I used to work as an actor. I was a production assistant at the time.

With Schlock, Landis made his directorial debut at the age of 21. The film is a tribute to monster movies, which he also wrote and acted in. Rick Baker designed the gorilla outfit for the picture, marking the start of a long-term partnership between Landis and Baker. Despite being finished in 1971, Schlock was not published until 1973, after it drew Johnny Carson’s attention. Carson, a fan of the picture, requested Landis to appear on The Tonight Show and played snippets from it to help promote it. Although Schlock has established a cult following, Landis has called the picture “awful.”

Eon Productions recruited Landis to develop a cinematic treatment for The Spy Who Loved Me, but Albert R. Broccoli rejected his screenplay about James Bond foiling a kidnapping of the Pope in Latin America because it satirised the Catholic Church.

After seeing Landis on the Tonight Show, David Zucker hired him to direct The Kentucky Fried Movie. The satirical sketch comedy of Monty Python, Free the Army, The National Lampoon Radio Hour, and Saturday Night Live served as inspiration for the film. It is remarkable for being the first picture written by the Zucker, Abrahams, and Zucker team, who would go on to have success with films such as Airplane! and The Naked Gun trilogy.
