Before being cast as Elizabeth Grainger in The Virginian Sara Lane appeared in a William Castle film that has since become a cult classic.  I Saw What You Did (1965) was the influence for the 1997 film I Saw What You Did Last Summer starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar.


Sara (Sarah) Lane was cast a teenager, who along with her friend and younger sister, is involved in a series of prank phone calls.  Their message  “I saw what you did, and I know who you are”  soon has deadly consequences.
