Trivia:

Although Clifton is credited with having directed several films released in 1950, they were all shot before his death in 1949. Not Wanted (1949) is actually his last film--Ida Lupino took over directing the picture after Clifton suffered a heart attack on set, and in fact he died shortly after its release. See more »
