1965 - "I Saw What You Did" - The film was initially promoted using giant plastic telephones but after a rash of prank phone calls and complaints, the telephone company refused Castle permission to use them or mention telephones. So he turned the back rows of theaters into "Shock Sections". Seat belts were installed to keep patrons from being jolted from their chairs in fright
