Product Details

Checkmate was one of the best television dramas to come out of the 1960's, combining great scripts, locations and casting. Created by thriller-writer Eric Ambler and filmed on the streets of San Francisco, the series revolves around two investigators, Don Corey (Anthony George) and his young partner Jed Sills (Doug McClure). In their quest to prevent crimes before they happen, Dr. Carl Hyatt (Sebastian Cabot), a university criminologist, joins them. Some of America's most talented actors and actresses joined the sleuths in their second season of weekly tales of intrigue and danger. Some of them include Dorothy Malone, Mary Astor, Claire Bloom, Nick Adams, John Astin, James Coburn and Patricia Neal. The show's haunting music, composed by John Williams (Star Wars) is perfectly suited for Checkmate's intriguing San Francisco setting, of fog-filled streets, sweeping ocean views and cable cars. This three DVD box set, faithfully reproduced from the original NBC masters, includes twelve of the very best of Checkmate's second season.
