Born William Schloss, William Castle (April 24, 1914 – May 31, 1977) was an American exploitation film director/writer/producer, and actor. Castle got his initial start in show business working on NYC's Broadway doing construction and later he began acting. He worked as an assistant to director Orson Welles doing much of the second unit location work for Welles' noir classic The Lady from Shanghai. Castle went on to become an exploitation cinema legend for directing movies with many crazy gimmicks which were ambitiously promoted, despite being reasonably low budget.
