Two of the movies were directed by Philip Karlson, who also directed THE PHENIX CITY STORY and THE BROTHERS RICO, among others, and later directed WALKING TALL. Even more shocking, the screenplay for one of the films was written by William McGivern, who also wrote THE BIG HEAT and ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW.
