Biography by Hal Erickson

Filmmaker Maury Dexter kicked off his Hollywood career as producer of several "B" pictures for 20th Century-Fox that were released in the early 1960s. He briefly turned director in 1963, helming his own productions The Day Mars Invaded Earth (1963), House of the Damned (1963), Maryjane (1968) and many others. The last person to ever call himself an artist, Dexter seemed content to go through life as a second-string Roger Corman. Never was the Maury Dexter-Roger Corman correlation more pronounced than in Dexter's late-1960s string of motorcycle flicks, the most notorious of which was The Miniskirt Mob (1967).
