For 40 years he produced movies in a variety of genres. There were Westerns such as "The Cimarron Kid," starring Audie Murphy, and "Return of the Seven," as well as comedies.
Richmond also worked with such stars as Beau Bridges, Charles Laughton, Boris Karloff, Tony Curtis, Janet Leigh, Anne Bancroft, Rock Hudson, Charles Bronson and Bob Hope. The producer's last film was 1979's "The Fifth Musketeer."
Talking about 'It Happened at the World's Fair' Ted Richmond told the local paper, "Writers have been in Seattle recently, selecting locations and material. While the Fair will be the background we also plan to include other facets of the Northwest, the orchards, the logging camps, in the picture which will be shot in colour and CinemaScope"
During filming to get across the fairgrounds Elvis had to ride through crowds of fairgoers in an open electrical vehicle. Although a security perimeter of sorts was attempted, "Girls laughingly assaulted the police who locked arms to keep the crowds from the singer.”
With inclement weather potentially delaying filming with Elvis, Ted Richmond joked, "I'm holding my breath at the rate of $6,000 an hour"!
