(You know me and character actors.)
I first saw Steven Hill in an episode of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour entitled ‘The Thanatos Palace Hotel’. A place where suicidal folk could go to be murdered. 😨
Following that, I was at home in bed recovering from the onset of my leg disability. Watched a lot of TV. And the show ‘Mission Impossible’ premiered.
I WAS HOOKED! Both on the show’s premise and the MI team’s head honcho, Dan Briggs.
Played by Stephen Hill.
He left after the first season, because he refused to work Saturday, being an Orthodox Jew.
Later, he was a District Attorney on Law & Order. And was also memorable.
(Sandwiching many, many other shows in-between!)
