The Great Boris Karloff
1 May 2010 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Night of the Golden Cobra" was the first episode to be shot in color, with the great Boris Karloff on hand as Mr.Singh, who wants Jim West (Robert Conrad) to teach his sons the finer points of killing, while his daughter (Audrey Dalton) helps him out of one scrape after another. A disappointing entry, scripted in repetitious fashion, helped immeasurably by Karloff's presence. Later that season, Boris would show up on THE GIRL FROM U.N.C.L.E., playing the title role in "The Mother Muffin Affair," and also I SPY, in "Mainly on the Plains," with an unbilled Paul Naschy, shot on location in Spain, where he would next complete "Cauldron of Blood," which was filming in Madrid when the episode aired on Feb 22 1967. Irish-born Audrey Dalton, at 32 nearing the end of her busy TV career, was no stranger to Karloff, having previously appeared in three episodes of his anthology THRILLER.
