Another neighbor is newly-relocated George Dolenz, an Austro-Hungarian widower who is awaiting the arrival of his two teen children and in the meantime has managed to catch the eye of the lonely and neglected Mathews. He's first seen swimming in a pair of clam-diggers, his suit apparently not having made the trip to sunny California yet.
One good shot deserves another I say!:
The director of this film, William Alland (seen here with
Roman and the humpy Anka in a shot of his li'l swimsuit that is sadly absent from the movie!), had never directed anything before and never directed another film after despite demonstrating more than a few clever touches in Look in Any Window. An actor in the 1940s, he turned to writing in the 1950s and spent the late-'50s and early-'60s producing. His chief contributions as a producer were the three Creature from the Black Lagoon films, with his final movie being 1966's The Rare Breed with James Stewart and Maureen O'Hara. He died in 1997 of heart disease at the age of eighty-one.
Sampson enjoyed a fifty year-long career as a useful supporting actor in dozens of TV shows and movies. Grayam, on the other hand, had made his debut here and was finished in the business completely by the following year after just two TV guest roles.
