A scriptwriter by the early '40s, Walter Doniger wrote films for such directors as William Dieterle (Rope of Sand) and Raoul Walsh (Along the Great Divide). He began directing in the mid '50s with a series of prison films: Duffy of San Quentin (which he also produced), its sequel The Steel Cage, and The Steel Jungle (which he also wrote). A sporadic director, Doniger returned to the prison theme in the early '60s with House of Women. He also helmed Safe at Home!, an attempt to turn Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris into actors, and two television films, Mad Bull and Kentucky Woman.
