Personal Quote:

[on his last film, The Power (1968), produced by George Pal] The personal friction between MGM and George Pal--the hatreds between them, you just wouldn't believe!--were allowed to operate on that film's economy. It wasn't released with any fanfare. It was grudgingly allowed to escape, with everyone at MGM hoping it would flop, because they were trying to get rid of Pal.

Trivia:

In the 1960s Haskin directed several episodes of The Outer Limits (1963) science-fiction series, including The Outer Limits: Demon with a Glass Hand (1964), a favorite among the show's fans, written by Harlan Ellison. The long-awaited sequel, "Demon on the Run", was scheduled to have been shown on the television series, Babylon 5 (1994), sometime in 1997 or 1998, but sadly it was never filmed.
