Description by OLDIES.com:
A decorated war hero, director Samuel Fuller dealt with such highly controversial themes as prostitution and pedophilia in The Naked Kiss and racism in White Dog (1981). Among his best works is the film-noir classic Pickup On South Street (1953) and his war epics, Steel Helmet (1951) and The Big Red One (1980), which was based on his own experiences. Philadelphia native Anthony Eisley was best known for his starring role in TV's "Hawaiian Eye" (1959-1963). Replaced after three seasons, he went on to cult shlock hero status, appearing in such films as The Navy Vs The Night Monsters (1966), The Mighty Gorga (1969), Dracula Vs Frankenstein (1971) and Ted Mikels' The Doll Squad (1974). Julliard-trained Constance Towers, featured in the Blake Edward's 1955 musical, Bring Your Smile Along, went on to appear in John Ford's productions of The Horse Soldiers (1959) and Sergeant Rutledge (1960). In 1963, she starred in Samuel Fuller's Shock Corridor, one year before The Naked Kiss.
