Here’s a promotional spot/preview for “The Grim Reaper,” the June 13th, 1961 episode of NBC’s Thriller, the final episode of the show’s first season.


  • Barry I. Grauman says:

    Another Robert Bloch shocker (based on a story by Harold Lawlor), with a memorable performance by William Shatner.

  • Paul Duca says:

    Of course, the Grim Reaper would be Ben Casey, clobbering the show when they moved it to Mondays for its second season
    (the penultimate episode, the Ida Lupino-directed “The Lethal Ladies” opens with an in-joke of a nurse murdering “Ben”)
