Facts about

Leo Gordon had once served time for armed robbery at Folsom Prison. The guards remembered him as a troublemaker, and always made him enter and exit the prison separate from the cast and crew, and always strip-searched him.
This was such a hit that Walter Wanger teamed with 'Don Siegel (I)' two years later for the now classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
