On March 8, 1967 the I Spy episode “Blackout” aired. A drugged Kelly awakes in a seedy hotel room to find the beautiful Russian ballerina who was his assignment, dead. With Scotty’s help, he has to piece together what happened the night before and clear himself of her murder.
One minute into the episode and Culp has his shirt off. Practically a record!
Ok, all kidding aside on Culp shirtless (can you blame me? I mean, really, can you?) this is a fine whodunnit episode with the boys having to piece everything together. Scotty doesn’t let Kelly give in for one second.
Although it’s hard to see it as the scene takes place during the night, Kelly appears to wear a full length leather duster in this episode. Nice!
Here’s the opening act (after the credits) that sets the stage for the rest of the episode. This, folks, is a fine example of the drama that I Spy was known for.
