Special praise of this film by the influential British critic Dilys Powell was highly significant to Spielberg's career.
Another TV film (Something Evil) was made and released to capitalize on the popularity of The Exorcist, then a major best-selling book which had not yet been released as a film.
He fulfilled his contract by directing the TV film-length pilot of a show called Savage, starring Martin Landau.
Based on the strength of his work, Universal signed Spielberg to do four TV films.
The first was a Richard Matheson adaptation called Duel.
