If Alfred Hitchock was an artistic genius, William Castle was the genius of showmanship. Castle started his film career as an assistant to Orson Welles—not a bad beginning. He always wanted to be a director. He got his chance. And, now, he’s known as the King of B Pictures. We can credit Castle with films such as The House on Haunted Hill, The Tingler, Thirteen Ghosts, Mr. Sardonicus, Straitjacket and I Saw What you Did. The former two starred Joan Crawford in her descent from Movie Queen and her ascent to Scream Queen. Castle was also the producer of Rosemary’s Baby.
