By the mid-'70s, he operated his own studios, New World Pictures, which allowed him to take a dip in the world of hoity-toity art films. He started as the American distributor of Creator/IngmarBergman's ''Film/CriesAndWhispers'', a rare example of a foreign film that got a Best Picture nomination. Other films by international directors distributed by Corman in the United States included ''Literature/TheTinDrum'', Creator/AkiraKurosawa's ''Literature/DersuUzala'', Bergman's ''Film/AutumnSonata'', Creator/FedericoFellini's ''Film/{{Amarcord}}'', Creator/AlainResnais's ''Film/MonOncleAmerique'', and Creator/FrancoisTruffaut's ''Small Change'' and ''Film/TheStoryOfAdeleH''. He left in 1981 and formed a company called New Concorde (for added irony, Fox would end up buying New World in 1997, albeit long after they had ceased motion picture production and had instead become an owner of TV stations that had all been switched to Fox as a result of Fox acquiring rights to the NFL- see DisasterDominoes for more on ''that'' whole mess).

Corman did have his shining moment of artistic legitimacy when he directed a series of Gothic {{horror}}s based on the works of Creator/EdgarAllanPoe. These eight films -- all released between 1960 and 1964, and all but one starring Creator/VincentPrice -- are noticeably uneven, but the standouts ''really'' stand out. These include ''[[Film/ThePitandthePendulum The Pit and the Pendulum]]'' and ''House of Usher'', featuring legendary performances from Price, and ''The Haunted Palace'', which was the first [[LovecraftOnFilm screen adaptation]] of an Creator/HPLovecraft story (''Literature/TheCaseOfCharlesDexterWard''), [[DolledUpInstallment dolled up]] for the Poe series. Also directed ''Film/TheLittleShopOfHorrors'' in 1960; it was filmed in exactly two days, a world record. Corman made one film, ''The St. Valentine's Day Massacre'' (1967), for a major studio (Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox) with a decent budget, but disliked the experience and resumed low budget films.
