In this chapter, Walters’ life in Palm Springs is explored, including the launching of “Chuck Walters Presents,” a men’s clothing store that sold the director’s personally designed fashions. Walters begins a new personal relationship with Jimie Morrissey. The popular decline of the movie musical is discussed, and Dore Schary is removed from M-G-M. Walters typecasting as a “woman’s director” is his key reason for directing the military comedy Don’t Go Near the Water (1957), a financial success. Walters re-shoots portions of Vincente Minnelli’s Oscar-winning Gigi, and the two directors are compared.

Keywords:   Palm Springs, “Chuck Walters Presents”, Woman’s director, Don’t Go Near the Water, Gigi, Vincente Minnelli
