Detailing his more than often unsung achievements in dramatic filmic work such as the harrowing Night Mother (1986) starring Sissy Spacek and Ann Bancroft right through to horror TV movies such as Satan's School For Girls (1973) and How Awful About Allan (1970), as well as his achievements in television with highly popular shows such as The Love Boat (1977–86) through to shows that deserve more of a spotlight like Hotel (1983–88).
