Man of Mystery

Written by Robert Bloch, from his own story
Directed by John Newland
Starring John Van Drellen, Mary Tyler Moore, and William Windom
Originally aired on April 2, 1962

When a former colleague threatens to go public with the biography of a reclusive tycoon, a deadly chain of events is set into motion.

Fans of classic television will easily recognize Mary Tyler Moore, who became a superstar playing Laura Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show. (On the day that this episode of Thriller first aired, The Dick Van Dyke Show was already six months into the first of its five seasons.) TV fans should also recognize actor William Windom. Windom is probably best known for playing Dr. Seth Hazlitt on the Emmy-winning Murder, She Wrote, but prior to his stint in that series, he had guest spots in popular shows such as The Twilight Zone, Star Trek, and Night Gallery, and he also appeared alongside Gregory Peck in the Oscar-winning film To Kill a Mockingbird (1962).
