Here’s director William Witney with a Mr. Leonard Franklin Slye.
Witney was one of the finest action directors ever. Quentin Tarantino sang his praises in a New York Times article and I’d like to think it made people load up their Netflix lists with stuff like SOS Coast Guard and Bells Of Coronado. From that article:
“I’ve found directors of some of these movies who I’m really into, but William Witney is ahead of them all, the one whose movies I can show to anyone and they are just blown away.”
Stranger At My Door (1956) might be the best of his many films. But it’s really hard to beat his later Roy Rogers pictures like Trail Of Robin Hood (1950) and Spoilers Of The Plains (1951).
