We close the work week with another look at the Ellery Queen episode “The Adventures of Caesar’s Last Sleep.” It first aired on March 14, 1976. As Halloween is fast approaching, I thought we’d all enjoy this delightfully creepy shot of freelance thug Jay Bonner skulking behind doors and being mysterious.
You can watch this episode right now for pennies at Amazon Instant Video, so check it out, won’t you?
(please forgive the bad pun)
This pic of Tim as Frankenstein’s monster (click to embiggen, IF YOU DARE!!!) can be glimpsed in the work-in-progress documentary by Romeo Carey that is available at Absolute Films. I am guessing that it was taken during the creation of the fabled television commercial for Sambo’s restaurant that Tim made back in the 80’s. Finding the actual commercial is proving to be next door to impossible. It’s become my personal Holy Grail of Careyabilia. I will find it! *shakes fist*
Apparently Halloween was quite the production at the Carey homestead. I can’t help but envy all the lucky neighborhood kids who got to go trick-or-treating at Tim’s house.
Happy Halloween, everybody!
Our Pic of the Day for today is from the second of Tim’s appearances on The Greatest American Hero. The episode is “The Resurrection of Carlini,” which first aired on November 19, 1982. He portrays Blanchard, the late great magician Carlini’s former assistant, who is keeping the spirit of his boss alive in a rather creepy way.
They should have tried to get this one aired closer to Halloween; it would have fit right in! Tim was a big fan of Halloween, by the way.
