Before he became a director of film and television (in the latter, he most notably directed several episodes of Star Trek), Joseph Pevney first entered show business as an actor. Beginning in vaudeville, he soon turned to the stage before Hollywood came calling for his film debut Nocturne (1946); after a handful of film appearances as an actor – most notably alongside John Garfield in Body and Soul (1947) – he went to Universal-International Pictures, where he launched his directorial career with Shakedown.
