While going through Ms. Tibbs's apartment, Kolchak reads a "scroll" and describes it as saying she was "some kind of a member of a society at the Max Match corporation...", as if this is completely new to him. But just a short time before he found the same scroll in William Cubby's apartment. See more »

Fair Helen
19 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Cathy Lee Crosby stars in this Kolchak episode as the lovely Helen of Troy famed for her beauty back in the day which got a couple of guys thinking with their male members and the city of Troy fell as a result. Helen is still with us but she has to steal the youth from a lot of youthful admirers and offer it to Hecate to keep her beauty.

For which she has caused the deaths of several young men who turn up as aged corpses. She has a dating service for that purpose, the girl is in the age of Information to be sure.

Of course it takes a reporter experienced in the occult to handle the story although Darren McGavin nearly ends up a sacrifice himself.

I'm surprised at some of the reviews here from folks who didn't like the episode. I loved it and I thought it most in keeping with the spirit of Kolchak: The Night Stalker.
