It Takes a Thief - The Classic 1968 Robert Wagner Series is Rumored for DVD Release!

No definite announcement yet, so we officially have to call this 'gossip' for now

Posted by David Lambert
Are you sitting down? The rumors have reached our ears, from a VERY reliable industry source, that the classic Robert Wagner series It Takes a Thief, which ran on ABC for 3 seasons (from 1968-1970), is finally going to come to DVD!

The series co-starred Malachi Throne, who had key guest roles in such classic shows as Star Trek ("Commodore Mendez"), Batman ("False Face," which is said to be that show's more family-friendly version of the classic villian Two-Face), Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea ("Blackbeard the Pirate") and Babylon 5 ("Centauri Prime Minister"), among many others in his long career. The legendary Fred Astaire had a recurring role in the show's last season, and another recurring role was had by the ever-lovely Susan Saint James (Kate & Allie, McMillan & Wife).

There are many more recurring stars and guest stars to mention from the show's 66-episode run, but we'll save that for the official announcement, if and when that comes! Right now this DVD is just gossip, officially, but it comes from a source that has always proven to be right on the money. We'll fill you in once we find out which studio is involved (it may have been sub-licensed), and what else we can expect about the show's release. Stay tuned!
