American film director primarily of independent movies, he is perhaps best remembered for the cult film, “Teenagers from Outer Space” released by Warner Brothers in 1959. That same year, the pressures of the industry, financial concerns, and his own fragile mental state contributed to a mental breakdown that included delusions that he was another coming of Jesus Christ, born to save humanity. Graeff, pronounced "Graff" tried to get his life under control, drifting in and out of projects for the next ten years. On December 19, 1970, he committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning in a garage in La Mesa, CA.. He was 41.
