Look What I Just Found! :)

Two Jack Kelly episodes from Kraft Suspense Theatre for your enjoyment! 

The first is "The Name of the Game" (1963), in which suave gamblin' man JK rolls the bones for a filthy rich oilman (Pat Hingle) in Las Vegas. Watch for one of the worst staged fight scenes ever filmed in this otherwise excellent episode.

Next is "Four Into Zero" (1965), in which pampered husband JK tries to assert himself and impress his wealthy wife (Martha Hyer) by masterminding a daring heist on a train. Robert Conrad is another member of JK's scheming quartet.

  1. I vividly remember a bit of the original publicity for this. I'm amazed by the title, just like the later series based on the subsequent unrelated Tony Franciosa TV-movie "Fame is the Name of the Game." Watched the first few minutes of it immediately and it looks good. You're the absolute champion at finding this surprising endless string of post-Maverick shows revolving around Kelly. And this one directed by Sidney Pollack! No wonder it looks so good.
