Today’s pic takes another look at Jules Forel, the silent assassin of “Fear of High Places”, the premiere episode of The Name of the Game which first aired on September 20, 1968. Here he is looking appropriately mysterious before the final showdown with investigating reporter Jeff Dillon (Anthony Franciosa).
Timothy and Franciosa had previously appeared together in Gordon Douglas‘ Rio Conchos (1964). Franciosa also had a substantial role in a film that I believe was a major influence on the creation of The World’s Greatest Sinner, Elia Kazan‘s A Face in the Crowd (1957). He truly scared the bejabbers out of me in Dario Argento‘s Tenebre (1982).
