Cyborg Killing Machine - The Terminator

Humble Beginnings: Shot for a paltry $5.6 million, Cameron and Hurd attribute their ingenuity and rebellious spirit to their mentor: Roger Corman. “We were ready to take on Hollywood and show them how it could be done cheaper and faster, because we’d learned from the master,” Cameron said. “The first thing he taught me,” Hurd added, “is belief in myself.” According to Hurd, 99 people rejected “The Terminator” when it was first being shopped around, “but all you need is that 100th person to say yes.” And the final lesson that Corman taught her? “You can do just about anything with some bailing wire and grip tape.”
