    One of William ‘The Tingler’ Castle’s first directorial efforts! An often overlooked item in his filmography. The commentary and extras are a welcome addition. Another early Castle film I’ve been trying to track down is ‘It’s a Small World’ (1950). One look at its IMDb page will explain why – “The Amazing Story of a Man Forced to Live in a Child’s World!”
