Harry O - 'The Complete 1st Season' is Announced and Now Available from The Warner Archive

The crime show starring David Janssen comes home with 22 episodes and the original pilot telefilm

Posted by David Lambert
    Harry Orwell is a decidedly different detective. And Harry O is decidedly different TV show. Forced off the force thanks to a bullet lodged near his spine, former police detective Harry Orwell gets by on his disability pension and the occasional private detecting gig ("100 bucks a day. Plus expenses"). No flashy car for the downtrodden Harry - he's as apt to get around town on bus as he is on foot. But he's as savvy as he is sophisticated, and though he might have to avoid the slugfests, he can crack any case. Even if it sometimes breaks his heart.

    Harry O features an actor at the top of his game, playing a character complex enough to contain his talents. This Six-Disc, 22-Episode Collection features the entire first season, co-starring Henry Darrow and Anthony Zerbe. Special guests include Stefanie Powers, Linda Evans, Martin Sheen, and Cab Calloway. Special Bonus: Contains the Original Pilot - Such Dust as Dreams Are Made On
The Warner Archive Collection has surprised us all with a Wednesday announcement and release (it's usually a Tuesday thing!) for their manufacture on demand (MOD) title Harry O - The Complete 1st Season. This package is priced at $49.95 SRP for 1210 minutes: 22 episodes for the show's first season, and the original pilot telefilm " Such Dust as Dreams Are Made On." Note, please, that the second pilot telefilm called "Harry O - Smile Jenny, You're Dead" came out as a stand-alone DVD from Warner Archive (and Amazon CreateSpace) over a year ago.

Now you'll get the rest of the David Janssen-starring show's opening salvo, and if it sells well the shows second (and last) season of twenty-two episodes might possibly be coming as well. At this time Harry O - The Complete 1st Season is only available to U.S. customers through the studio's WBShop online store (see button link below), but in about a month or so we're expecting to see it available globally through Amzon's CreateSpace MOD program as well. Our thanks to reader Gregory Meshman for his help with this story; here's a high-res look at the packaging:
