Why Watch it Today?: Director William Girdler was born on this date 65 years ago today. Girdler only completed nine films before he died in a helicopter crash while scouting locations in the Philippines, but the films he made are much-loved by B-movie fans, especially his shameless cash-ins, like today’s “Jaws in a forest“.
