I have just added another batch of five original ABC press photos to the related section on the media page. This time, I uploaded premieres for seasons 3 and 4 plus another picture for the initial episode of season 5 (The Thrill Killers). Furthermore, you might be delighted to see season 5 additions for Castle Of Fear, starring Pat Hingle, as well as for Dead Lift, starring no less than Arnold Schwarzenegger performing the psychologically instable body-builder Joe Schmidt (in a rather 'moderate' acting performance as many say). Nonetheless, the press photo is quite hard to find so I am happy and proud to be able to have it online for you all out there. The media gallery now totals in 70 original press photos issued by ABC.
The media page now offers another five original ABC press release photos. This time, I added shots from season two episodes Betrayed, starring Martin Sheen, and Blockade, starring Ida Lupino (both photos are potraits of their respective character), as well as of season 3 episode Letter From The Grave, season 4 episode Clown of Death (showing Mike in full make-up), and season 5 episode Dead or Alive.
Unfortunately, I have seen that some people in the worldwide web (in this case the founder of a german language Facebook group on the series) do not respect common rules of good manner when it comes down to the use of pictures and other kinds of website contents (media brochures, TV guide covers etc.). Therefore, I had to make the decision and added a visible watermark to all press release pictures published on this website. Sorry for any kind of inconvenience. The copyright for the original photos still lies with the relevant television and production companies, of course.
I have also prepared some original filming locations photography which is being uploaded soon. Enjoy. :)
I have just added the screencaps for One Last Shot to the episodes' page. Officer Joe Landers is suffering from alcoholic dependancy. Following a robbery in a local market, Landers and his veteran partner, Mel Shaffer, chase a suspect whose car seems to match the description provided by police headquarters. Under the influence of the cheap booze he consumed in a rest room a few minutes earlier, Landers manhandles the suspect and draws his gun. The suspect, Robert Graves, tries to make him take the gun down, and in the following close fight, the weapon goes off and Landers' partner is shot. Knowing the situation would get into a 'a former crook's word against a cop's word', Graves knocks down benumbed Landers and escapes. Little does Landers know that two eye-witnesses observed the situation, and his old friend's widow does not seem to have faith in him neither - nor does Corky Shaffer, Mel's son who also serves as a police officer. When Mike and Steve turn their focus onto a possible killing by a drunken cop, paranoia adds to Landers' symptoms, resulting in attempts on the lives of our two cops as well.
This episode's opening scenes were all filmed between Inner Richmond, Laurel Heights, and The Panhandle, including the chase and shooting between Landers and Graves. For the characters' homes, the film crew moved over to Dolores Heights, where not only Officer Shaffer's and Joe Lander's homes are located but also the house of suspect Robert Graves and his pregnant wife (their neat house, however, was demolished in the meantime). They also used to film several sequences on the SFPD headquarters' former parking lot and inside the lobby on Bryant Street, whereas Graves' interim hideouts (the first one being where Landers erroneously shoots at Steve, and the second one where Graves meets his brother) were located in the Western Addition. His paranoia finally leads drunken Landers to the skidrow part of Embarcadero underneath the elevated freeway between Mission and Howard Streets before he shoots on Mike Stone in his homicide bureau.
Diana Douglas, actress and mother of Michael Douglas, passed away on July 3rd, 2015 in Los Angeles.
Born as Diana Dill on the Bermudas in 1923, Diana Douglas was married to Kirk Douglas from 1943 to 1951. She co-starred in season 2 episode Chapel of the Damned besides her son and Karl Malden as Mrs. Adele Sloan, a wealthy widow, who rather confessed in a female psychic's alleged abilities than in Stone's and Keller's professional work.
