The role of the independent director is explored, as is Walters’ work at Columbia directing Cary Grant’s final film Walk, Don’t Run (1966). This hit comedy also becomes Walters final feature film. He begins a personal relationship with Joseph Anthony. The popular resurgence of the movie musical in the 1960s is surveyed; Walters work on Lucille Ball’s sitcom Here’s Lucy is discussed. Walters desire to direct the film adaptation of the musical Mame is presented, with Ball’s explanation of why that didn’t happen.
