By 1962 he had moved into the director's chair and one of his TV dramas This Savage Land (1966) was shown in cinemas outside the US. Later solo work includes Firecreek (1968), Smoke (1970), The Million Dollar Duck (1971), Charley and the Angel (1973), The Castaway Cowboy (1974), The Strongest Man in the World (1975), Treasure of Matecumbe (1976), Gus (1976), Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo (1977), The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again (1979), Herbie Goes Bananas (1980) and Amy (1981), his last, although he continued making TV series episodes until 2000. The director Bernard McEveety, who died in 2004, was his older brother.
