Harry O: Portrait of a Murder (ABC 20 Nov 1975, with Adam Arkin)

Published

on

In Portrait of a Murder a necktie strangler claims his third victim at the carnival on Santa Monica Pier. A mentally challenged young man, Eric Kershaw (he’s 19 but has a mental age of 7), looks to be prime suspect but Harry is not so sure.

The problem is that Eric was at the scene of two of the murders. Eric, however, protests his innocence and insists that he saw a lion at the murder scene. Meanwhile Trench, lead investigator on the case, is convinced Eric is the killer.

Lots of familiar faces including a young Adam Arkin as the troubled Eric, but there are also roles for Katherine Helmond as Eric’s mother and Lou Frizzell as his father.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
