In keeping with the spooky Halloween theme – old news now on November 1st, I know, but I’m writing this on All Hallow’s Eve – today’s Show Toppers features Kolchak: The Nightstalker.
Kolchak: The Nightstalker first aired as a TV movie (The Nightstalker) in 1971 and continued with another TV film (The Night Strangler) in 1973. The series proper originally ran Friday evenings on ABC from September, 1974 to August, 1975.
Darren McGavin starred as Chicago newspaper reporter, Carl Kolchak who investigated and reported on supernatural and downright bizarre stories. Kolchak’s disbelieving editor, Tony Vincenzo, was played by Simon Oakland. Jack Grinnage and Ruth McDevitt rounded out the cast. Take in the spooky intro below.
