Biography

Began his career as a TV director and earned critical acclaim for his feature debut, "One Potato, Two Potato" (1964), shot on a budget of only $230,000.

Peerce's subsequent film work has been erratic, though he scored another hit with "Goodbye, Columbus" (1969), adapted from the novel by Philip Roth. He continues to work in TV.
