by Wolff's UCLA friend, Monte Hellman, remains a well-remembered low-budget horror title, with a spider-like creature menacing a trio of robbers, led by Wolff, trapped in a ski lodge. In contrast, the equally poverty-budgeted ''Attack'', on which Corman himself took over the directorial reins, turned out to be a little-noticed World War II quickie in which a quartet of GI (GI (military))s on skis slog through a snowbound landscape. The group's leader, a tall, stalwart lieutenant (Michael Forest), who played a similarly characterized forest ranger in ''Beast'', is continually challenged by the disdainful sergeant (Wolff). ''Beast'' was first shown in October 1959, but eventually paired on a double bill with ''The Wasp Woman'' which, in line with the other films' Dakota (The Dakotas) link, premiered in Bismarck, North Dakota on February 12, 1960. The previous month, Wolff was seen in three TV appearances, ''The Untouchables (The Untouchables (1959 TV series))'' (January 7), ''The Lawless Years'' (January 19) and ''Rawhide (Rawhide (TV series))'' (January 29).

Later in the year, however, Wolff's billing dramatically increased to co-lead status in his next two Corman productions, scripted by Charles B. Griffith, ''Beast from Haunted Cave'' and ''Ski Troop Attack''. Shot back-to-back in the snowy wilderness outside Deadwood, South Dakota, the films used the same crew and cast, which, in addition to Wolff, included Michael Forest, Wally Campo, Richard Sinatra (Frank (Frank Sinatra)'s nephew) and Sheila Carol.
