Dementia 13 (1963)

It was my immediate thought. But for some reason I abandoned it and spent some time running through a few Mario Bava titles in my mind. But no. Gotta' go with Dementia 13. Roger...

Yes, the slip-shod studio handling of Let It Ride was an early indication that his blockbuster luster had faded, I suppose. No huge hits of the above magnitude starring Richard Dreyfuss would follow....
