Tom Connection: Tom's family was living in Costa Mesa at the time he made OCCS. Likely on the strength of his UCLA film Toast To Our Brother, Tom was hired by the local college to create a piece that could be shown on campus and at promotional fairs to entice new students. Like his previous film, Tom sought out the participation of a "name" actor, in this case Vincent Price, to lend some gravitas to the project. The production of the film was overseen by Dr. Norman Watson, who passed away in 2008.
