He started out wanting to be an actor but then changed his mind while working with the Motion Picture Squadron of the U.S. Air Force. After being discharged, he started out directing live-action films during the "Golden Age of Television" (like Creator/SidneyLumet), before directing his first film in 1957, ''The Young Stranger''.

* TroubledProduction:
** ''Film/TheIslandOfDrMoreau1996'', partly because he took over for a director that had been fired, and partly because he and Creator/ValKilmer didn't get along.
