Thanks for mentioning Torchy, because obviously this idea applies to B films as well as big budget releases.

RUN FOR THE SUN

This was the second remake of THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME. An earlier remake had been filmed by RKO in 1945. It starred John Loder and was directed by Robert Wise. It's the least known of the three productions. I can't remember it ever airing on TCM, but I've watched it on YouTube.

Known for turning out movies quickly

Edgar Ulmer...He filmed CLUB HAVANA in four days, on one set, without a script. Now that's directing!

W.S. Van Dyke...On the set of RAGE IN HEAVEN Ingrid Bergman was frustrated. The actress was used to extensive rehearsal and retakes to get a performance just right. But Van Dyke wasn't having it. He was anxious to finish and get on to the next movie.

William Beaudine...Very prolific, he ended up with 372 credits as a director. That's not including the 79 episodes of the Lassie TV show he did. They called him "one shot Beaudine."

You mentioned W.S. Van Dyke, who was known as 'One take Woody'..he took just 12 days to shoot The Thin Man 

Roger Corman--many of his early films were finished in under a week, including two of his best known..Bucket of Blood (5 days) and The Little Shop of Horrors (2 1/2 days)  Related image

Love how you got creative and expanded on the basic idea. Speaking of Maisie, there was also that time when she went to Nevada in MAISIE GOES TO RENO.
