Between February 25 and November 30, 1960, Arthur Penn was able to produce five hit plays, one film, and was even able to contribute to America's political history without having to deal directly with Hollywood. Penn expressed that he initially did not find a continuing ambition in film and thought that his last project would be The Left Handed Gun, but that was before he started receiving reviews from Europe. Arthur and Peggy were able to take advantage fully of Manhattan as they lived in New York. I Bury the Living was released to theaters in July 1958 while Arthur was making The Left Handed Gun, and Peggy was to take only a few additional acting jobs before pursuing the New School and begin practicing psychology. Arthur persisted as he always preferred theater over movies, and he was put in charge of choosing which projects he would work on after directing The Miracle Worker.
