He was the director of The Sid Caesar, Imogene Coca, Carl Reiner, Howard Morris Special (1967) special on CBS; it won an Emmy for outstanding variety special of 1967.


Some time after The Lost World (1960) came out, Universal Pictures planned to remake the Arthur Conan Doyle classic in the U. K. with Arnold directing. It was a project he wanted badly to do, but according to friend and former star John Agar, the studio canceled the project because of Arnold's health issues.


His other movies are a pretty varied and interesting bunch, including the hugely successful The Mouse That Roared (1959) (which helped to establish Peter Sellers as an international star), the teen exploitation gem High School Confidential! (1958), the superior Audie Murphy western No Name on the Bullet (1959), the goofy comedy Hello Down There (1969) and the silly softcore romp The Bunny Caper (1974).


Arnold's final two genre entries were the enjoyable Monster on the Campus (1958) and the offbeat The Space Children (1958).


The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957) rates highly as Arnold's crowning cinematic achievement; it's an intelligent and entertaining classic that's lost none of its potency throughout the years.


Revenge of the Creature (1955) was a worthy sequel.

Tarantula (1955) was likewise a lot of fun.
