Can you name all these classic TV stars in Kolchak: The Night Stalker?

They faced the bizarre and supernatural before, during and after their most famous roles.

Though the 1970s series Kolchak: The Night Stalker only lasted one season, the mix of humor and haunts have won it cult status among sci-fi fans. Only 20 episodes were produced, but a number of recognizable actors from the time appeared in parts large and small alongside Darren McGavin as investigative reporter Carl Kolchak.

We’ve gathered ten famous faces who made a name for themselves both before and after appearing in the show. Can you name them all?

10/10 Happy happy! Was a breeze. I recognized Julie Adams right off the bat. Not only from the deep lagoon, but she played a nurse named Mary on The Andy Griffith Show. She was trying to get Rafe Hollister to get his tetnus shot.

Movie is based on a 1950's novel. The plot follows imprisoned mastermind robber whose wife conspires for his release on the condition they rob a bank in Texas. A double-cross follows the crime and they are forced to flee for Mexico with the police and criminals in hot pursuit. They actors are top of their times and you know them well. You can follow these characters as they try to deny the crooks their share of the loot. The wife and husband team has many other problems that come up in the worst of times. Even slapping her silly for making a deal with the head honcho then sides with hubby at the last moment. There is quite a chase even losing the bag of dough to some thief at the train station. This Action, Crime, Thriller will keep you glued to the screen.

This one still gives me the chills watching it- Twilight Zone: The Howling Man (Climax). As he stupidly releases The Devil back onto humanity.

The Wanderer-Dion-.
.

Goldfinger - Laser Scene HD. No Mr. Bond! I expect you to die!
.

André Rieu - The Beautiful Blue Danube.
.

Pulp Fiction - Dance Scene (HQ).

Kavinsky - Nightcall "Drive".

We are having heavy rains 💦 and it is bringing down branches and trees across wires. The trees got stressed in the summer from too much heat and were weakened. One came down a few blocks away and took out power there. Anyways I am hopeful we have power this evening so I can participate in the quiz and watch clips.
texasluva MrsPhilHarris 11 months ago
Wow! Yes a lot of heat and no water can stress trees out. We did get some rain during our heat wave that has been going on for months. Also have many strong storms and tornados (thank goodness the tornados did not come through my area). We did in early February temperatures at zero or below that caused the power companies to turn power off and on. That killed my washer in garage and leaked. I am still today around 92F. I hate heat. I am going to check your weather out in hope it passes and you will be on. We've both had our share of topsy-turvy weather this year
texasluva MrsPhilHarris 11 months ago
It does not look for for your forecast-Rainfall accumulation: 50 to 80 mm is expected, with the higher amounts over Howe Sound and the North Shore mountains. Stay safe and hope to hear from you later.
MrsPhilHarris texasluva 11 months ago
Thanks. It’s horrible. Water pouring down the hill. I went to go for a walk and my runners got soaked in minutes. Gave up. So far so good as far as losing power. Fingers crossed.

This is the last movie I watched at a movie theater. It is one of those you'll never forget. I have been lucky to have found it on IA site. Once it starts rolling you will wonder what is to happen next. You will be on the edge of your seat and then comes the ending which will blow you away. I am not giving anything away because some of you may not have seen it. Starts so innocently then all hell breaks loose and what nonsense you think is really going on until you figure it all out. Hold on to your seats because you're going for a ride.......

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) 1 hr 43 min-Action-Drama-Horror
Director: Dan Trachtenberg
Cast:
John Goodman
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
John Gallagher Jr.
Note: There is a small problem with getting to the movie via below. The section has a load of other movies. It goes to the 10 Cloverfield Lane but reverts to the top movie on the list. No problem. There is a box with movie names below the left bottom of the screen. 10 Cloverfield Lane is 4th down on the list. You just need to click and the movie will play. Then click on the arrow plus full screen and off you go. (once you click on the movie you wish it will turn blue).
Let us know if you're able to complete this task-----
