Darren McGavin and Richard Anderson are two of the more familiar faces from 1970s TV and both played Steve Austin's handler in the Six Million Dollar Man. McGavin co-starred in the original pilot movie as Oliver Spencer. Richard Anderson went on to star as the straight-laced Oscar Goldman in the TV series. See more »
Several of the articles shown in the archive files of the "Seattle Daily Chronicle" clearly have the headline pasted over genuine newspaper pages by the art department; this is especially noticeable on the edition from [Tuesday] 27th March 1952 headed "WOMAN STRANGLED IN PIONEER SQUARE", which is peeling away.

I have been a fan since I read the first Rice book, and have stayed with it even up to the new series. I have all the DVDs and several on VHS in my collection. The character (Carl) has both inspired my real life and my own fiction, and will do so long after I'm gone. No matter what The Night Stalker in whatever form he resides should never be forgotten. I'm personally waiting for a novel version of The Night Killers. After watching the original TV movie and saw the next one was going to appear I nearly died waiting to see it hit the screen. Much to my delight it was as grand as the first. When the TV series hit the air waves I was just as please. Especially with the follow up story to the first TV movie. I would have loved to have seen more stories based upon that story line. Even this story line in The Night Strangler would have been worked. I was really burnt when the series was canceled, and even wrote letters of protest. Whenever the shows show up on scifi or anywhere I tune in. I never get tired of the saga and often feel for Carl and his struggles. The new series was interesting in it's own way, but not the same Carl of the original shows. Unfortunately it to was canceled, and now I have to wait for the next installment. Let's hope someone out there in Hollyworld sees the true merit and does a new version that measures up.
