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!
