CHARLES F. HAAS
Director Charles F. Haas signed this document in 1971 to calculate his dues for the Directors Guild of America. He noted on it that he is retired "(For the moment - but I'm not sure it's permanent)".
Annotated document signed "Charles F Haas" in blue ink. Blue ink and lead pencil notations in unknown hand and blue ink date stamp. 1 page, 8½x11. Dec. 21, 1971. Haas signed this document to calculate his 1972 dues for the Directors Guild of America. He stated that he earned no money as a producer or director in 1971, but estimated that he'd earn $10,000 in 1972. We're not sure where this money came from - possibly from residuals - as Haas had turned in his director's chair four years earlier, in 1967. He notes this underneath his signature, that he is retired "(For the moment - but I'm not sure it's permanent)". American director Haas, born Charles Friedman Haas in 1913, did everything from industrial films and documentaries to World War II training films before making his feature film directing debut in the D-Day actioner Screaming Eagles (1956). But he's best known for directing a string of tawdry, breathlesss grindhouse films (in other words, grindhouse films) during the late 1950s and 1960s. His output includes such gems as Girl's Town (1959), which was given the dubious honor of being lampooned on Mystery Science Theatre 3000, as well as The Beat Generation (1959), The Big Operator (1959) and Platinum High School (1960). Haas was also a TV director - and a good one, too! - on such series as Big Town (1952-1953), The Mickey Mouse Club (1955), 77 Sunset Strip (1959-1960), General Electric Theatre (1962) and The Outer Limits (1964-1965). In all, he directed almost 50 movies and TV shows between 1951 and 1967. Lightly creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
