Joseph Pevney began his showbiz career as a boy soprano on the vaudeville circuit in 1924. He then turned to acting, and during the 1930s and 1940s, he acted in several Broadway productions. He then broke into film, acting in such film-noir classics as "Body and Soul" and "Thieves' Highway."

He soon turned his attention to directing, first for motion pictures and later for television. His feature film directorial credits include such classics as the 1956 war drama "Away All Boats," the 1957 romantic comedy "Tammy and the Bachelor," and the Oscar-nominated drama "Man of a Thousand Faces." He directed many other popular television programs, including "Wagon Train," "Bewitched," "The Munsters," "The Fugitive," "Mission: Impossible," "The Virginian," "Bonanza," "Emergency!," "Fantasy Island," "The Rockford Files," and "Trapper John, M.D." among others. In a directing career spanning some 35 years, Pevney helmed over 35 films and hundreds of television episodes.
