Director Walter Grauman directed episodes of many TV series including The Twilight Zone episode “Miniature”, The Fugitive, The Untouchables and V. He made a couple of seldom seen TV movies: CROWHAVEN FARM (also featuring Carridine), DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES and THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO TV pilot. He made a few feature films including THE DISEMBODIED and James Caan’s first film LADY IN A CAGE.
Paul Gallico's book, although written in 1964, is as true today as it was 40 years ago. Besides the story of the afterlife and love, the book also shows the evil of mankind and how some people gain from the loss of others.
