Personal Quote:

[about producer Quinn Martin] He demanded quality. When it was night in a scene, he'd shoot at night; he wouldn't shoot it day for night . . . He spent some money. And he paid a little extra to directors, to writers, to everyone else to get that kind of quality.

Trivia:

Prolific TV director who began working in live TV in the '50s both as a director and sometime writer. Retired in the late '80s.
