How many are familiar with Boris Karloff's syndicated British teleseries COLONEL MARCH OF SCOTLAND YARD? A dealer at the 2009 Monster Bash in Butler Pa. had the entire series in a special case for just 30 dollars (26 episodes for basically a buck!). The mysteries themselves are not diificult to deduce, and the guest stars are numerous: Phil Brown (twice, WEIRD WOMAN, THE JUNGLE CAPTIVE), Anton Diffring (twice, THE MAN WHO COULD CHEAT DEATH, CIRCUS OF HORRORS), Marne Maitland (twice, THE TERROR OF THE TONGS, THE REPTILE), Arthur Hill (THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN), Hugh Williams (Lugosi's THE DARK EYES OF LONDON), Dana Wynter (INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS), Patricia Owens (THE FLY), Peter Dyneley (THE MANSTER), Sandra Dorne (THE HOUSE IN MARSH ROAD, DEVIL DOLL), George Coulouris (BLOOD FROM THE MUMMY'S TOMB, TOWER OF EVIL), Laurence Payne (VAMPIRE CIRCUS), Anthony Newley (X THE UNKNOWN), future director John Schlesinger (Oscar winner for MIDNIGHT COWBOY), Patricia Laffan (DEVIL GIRL FROM MARS), Alfred Burke (NIGHT CALLER FROM OUTER SPACE), Robert Brown (THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN, Bond's 'M' during the 80s), Adrienne Corri (CORRIDORS OF BLOOD, MADHOUSE), John Laurie (THE REPTILE), Zena Marshall (DR. NO, THE TERRORNAUTS), Martin Benson (CAPTAIN CLEGG, THE OMEN), Hugh Griffith (THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES), and young Peter Asher of Peter and Gordon. Arthur Crabtree (FIEND WITHOUT A FACE, HORRORS OF THE BLACK MUSEUM) directed 6 episodes, and Terence Fisher did one ("The Invisible Knife"). "Hot Money," "Death in the Dressing Room," and "The New Invisible Man" were shot in the fall of 1952 as a pilot, the rest were done a year later. Episode 5 is most notable- "At Night All Cats Are Gray," offering genre buffs their first opportunity to see Karloff working with 31 year old Christopher Lee, who then was far busier on television plying his versatility, as film producers were still leery of his height. There was one episode, "The Devil Sells His Soul," that for the most part had no sound, otherwise the shows were intact, if occasionally ragged. This was one series I never expected to see available, and seems to have been cobbled from TV broadcasts from all over the US. You can't go wrong for 30 dollars!
