The William Castle Blogathon :: Three People Locked in an Unholy Bond of Crime! (February, 1945)







After serving as dialogue director on a couple of films, William Castle slid into the director’s chair in 1943, working in Columbia’s B-Picture unit, where he directed about half of the serial adventures of The Whistler (Richard Dix) and The Crime Doctor (Warner Baxter).


This post is part of Goregirl’s Dungeon and The Last Drive-In’s The William Castle Blogathan, a week long tribute to the King of Schlock. Follow the linkage, Boils & Ghouls. It’s gonna be a great week. And stick around, as we’ll be showcasing Castle’s film career from its fairly normal beginnings through it psychotronic glory days. Stay tuned!
