American International Pictures was a film production company formed in 1956 from American Releasing Corporation by James H. Nicholson and Samuel Z. Arkoff, dedicated to releasing independently produced, low-budget films, primarily of interest to the teenagers of the 1950s.
AIP was the first company to use focus groups, polling American teenagers about what they would like to see and using their responses to determine titles, stars, and story content.
Today, a majority of the AIP library is at the hands of Orion's successor company MGM, which was purchased by a consortium led by Sony Pictures, but continues to operate as a separate company.

AIP was also a training ground for new actors and directors.

The interview was in conjunction with a Roger Corman retrospective sponsored by American International.
It is the second film produced by Roger Corman, and the first film released by American Releasing Corporation, the company that became A.I.P. The story of prison escapee John Ireland and rich girl Dorothy Malone moves along fitfully.
Given the status of American Releasing Corporation films in its first couple of years, the ambitions of this film were clearly to be no more than the cheap bottom half of a double feature.

Over the past few years the profile of independent films has risen so high that studios, not satisfied with buying up independent companies and hiring independent directors, have tentatively begun to experiment with films that are in most ways--except production values--indistinguishable from their "off-Hollywood" counterparts.
In fact, two of the directors of the most successful and critically acclaimed studio films of last year began their careers connected to Miramax: M. Night Shyamalan and Alexander Payne, while David O. Russell began at Fine Line and Anthony Minghella at Goldwyn.
Miramax's first hit after a lengthy drought is Scream 3, for all intents and purposes a studio film, despite a glance backward at the late, lamented American International Pictures.

House on Haunted Hill, both men earned an entirely new level of respectability and popular acclaim with The Fall of the House of Usher (or, as most prints and marquees simply called it, House of Usher).
Surprisingly close to the original Edgar Allan Poe story, this was one of the AIP studio's biggest hits at the time and set off a long, fruitful series of Corman/Price gothics, mostly based on other Poe stories.
Philip Winthrop (Black Sabbath's Mark Damon) arrives at the foggy, foreboding estate of Roderick Usher (Vincent Price), a morose, obsessed man whose sister, Madeleine (Myrna Fahey), is destined to be Philip's bride.
