Kolchak arranges to meet an informer at the Trevi Salon. But the man falls from an unoccupied top floor studio before Carl can learn what he knew. Now the mob is after Carl, and worse than that, so might be a supernatural force. A bit of research leads Carl to some people who might be able to help him. But all magic benefits from a little misdirection, and Carl has to correct his mistake before the real culprit's plan succeeds. Written by CommanderBalok

The Witching Hour
25 July 2008 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

In Chicago's "chichi" high fashion district, Kolchak (Darren McGavin) goes to meet an informant. Arriving at the sexy women's modeling agency, he witnesses the man being tossed out of the salon's top floor studio (a cool scene), to his death. At the Trevi salon, Kolchak also meets lovely Lara Parker (as Madelaine), a model eager to assist in Kolchak's investigation of the increasingly murderous activity centered at the salon. It quickly become clear a witch is involved. Ms. Parker suspects boss Nina Foch (as Madame Trevi).

This isn't a particularly strong episode; but, it does feature an especially strong guest appearance, by Lara Parker. She was up to her neck in similar behavior, on Dan Curtis' "Dark Shadows". Parker and Ms. Foch are outstanding. The execution and mannequin "effects" are weak. The series' touch of humor is used well, which might have sustained the series, had it been renewed. After all, how else would Tony (Simon Oakland)'s continuing supernatural doubts be explained?

***** The Trevi Collection (1/24/75) Don Weis ~ Darren McGavin, Lara Parker, Nina Foch, Simon Oakland
