Video of the Week: “Fear of High Places”

EDITOR’S NOTE 07/30/14: Another one gone with the wind. Sorry about that, folks.

And we’re back! I had a wonderful trip, but it sure is good to be home and back posting. So without further ado, here is our Video of the Week! It’s the premiere episode of The Name of the Game, “Fear of High Places”. It first aired on September 20, 1968. Timothy has a silent but quite interesting role as Jules Forel, enigmatic hit man.

Also appearing are series regulars Anthony Franciosa and Gene Barry, along with guest stars Robert Webber, Claudine Longet, Jeanne Crain, and even Zsa Zsa Gabor. Tim mentioned in his 1958 interview with Mel Heimer that one of his two snakes, a ten-foot python, was named Zsa Zsa. I wonder if he ever got a chance to tell her that. Anyway, this is a great time capsule of late ’60s television goodness. Enjoy!
