    • TRIVIA (1)

      • It was originally Blake Edwards's intention merely to produce this film version of the famous "Peter Gunn" TV series, which he had created and produced in the late 1950s. The job of directing was offered to a newcomer, William Friedkin, who, however, reacted so violently against the screenplay draft he was shown that he didn't get hired. Ironically, this version of the script was the work of William Peter Blatty, who, several years later, would collaborate with Friedkin with enormous success on the film version of "The Exorcist".
