After a moderately-successful career as a film actor, Joseph Pevney switched to directing and subsequently helmed over 90 productions, including movies and episodes of well-known television shows. His earliest credits were crime films--Pevney managed a prolific run of several films per-year throughout the '50s, and he also directed Joan Crawford in the camp classic "Female on the Beach" and James Cagney in the touching Lon Chaney biopic "Man of a Thousand Faces." By the early '60s, he was directing episodes of such classic television programs as "The New Breed," "Going My Way," "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour," and "The Munsters." Pevney would also helm a number of episodes of "Bonanza" and "Star Trek," eventually tying for directing the most Trek episodes, including the beloved "The Immunity Syndrome," "The City on the Edge of Forever," and "The Trouble With Tribbles." He continued directing television throughout the '70s and early '80s, including "The Incredible Hulk," "The Paper Chase," and the mini-series "How the West Was Won." Pevney also helmed a number of episodes of the medical dramas "Marcus Welby, M.D." and "Trapper John, M.D.," the latter being the final show he worked on.
