Hartford-Davis was a British filmmaker who made a number of exceptional
cult films (ie, of course this one, plus BLACK
TORMENT, Corruption, et al) and unfortunately quite
a few not-so-good ones (Murder in Peyton Place, Cat
and Dog, and others). In 1972, he moved to Los Angeles to direct
a blaxplotation version of Peter Gunn called Black Gunn.
Lured by ABC television, he became involved in their Family series
(1976-80) and other projects. A heart attack cut his life short in June
1977. Mr Hartford-Davis was 53 years old.
