Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[1992, interview in "The Miami Herald"] I find a great many things that never make it to the big screen, because they're controversial, wind up on television, and done with a considerable amount of daring. That seems surprising in a medium that's supposed to be timid or anxious. See more »

Trivia:

Schooled at Pasadena City College. First performed in radio drama and worked as a radio announcer. Acted at the Pasadena Playhouse. During World War II was classified as unfit for military service due to health problems, but worked with the USO entertaining troops in Europe. In the 1950s and 1960s made a name for himself as a director of seminal television episodes, particularly The Twilight Zone... See more »
