  1. His ” Man of a Thousand Faces ” is on my top ten list . Lon Chaney was always worth the price of admisssion and Cagney is my all-time actor — sorry Laurance.
    And in looking throught the mirage of blogs and misinformation I do see he indeed did direct ” Arena ” from star Trek . To mind I can’t think of the top Star Trek episode ( pike ) but Its up there with tribbles and the twentys ( the unreal timetrip to the flapper filled Amerika ) .
    He also directed episodes of ” High Chapperal ” a short lived but wonderful spagetti and high-exestential trip through the Early American west .
    He had a role in ” Nocturne ” — a film noir-classic , that I had just happened to watch the other night . He had a role in ” Body and soul ”
    Thank you sir for the laughter and the tears . If you started of f with just the notion to make entertainment then you completely succeded ….
    cue the lights !
