Pic of the Day: “Fear of High Places” revisited

The week begins with another look at the inaugural episode of The Name of the Game, the unusually-structured drama series of the late 1960s – early 1970s. The episode was “Fear of High Places,” kicking off the series on September 20, 1968. Timothy mainly saunters around with some killer muttonchops, silent and mysterious as hired gun Jules Forel. Here he pauses while beating the cheese out of investigating reporter Jeff Dillon (Anthony Franciosa).

Fear of High Places - 1968

I apologize for the dreadful quality of the screen caps from this one. The series has not seen a proper commercial release, so until then, bootlegs it is. The other episode of the series in which Tim appears, “Aquarius Descending” (12.11.70), playing a character known as Desert Rat, has so far been impossible to dig up. If anyone out there has any leads they could point me to, I would be eternally grateful.
