That's right! Megalithic actor Richard Kiel played the Diablero (an evil shaman of Native American mythology), before appearing in "The Spy Who Love Me" as the metallic-toothed henchman of eco-terrorist Karl Stromberg. And, I'll confess: I found him suitably scary in the role, the first time I saw this ep.
But, I also loved it for the touches of levity laced throughout. For example?
KOLCHAK (trying to crash a private jewelry auction): "The name is Kol...worth. Carl Kolworth!"
SNOBBISH BUTLER (being sarcastic): "Any relation to the Woolworths?"
KOLCHAK: "Only distantly. They dealt mostly in wool. And, we...dealt in coal."
The biggest laugh of all, however? When I saw a SCIFI Channel re-run of this, last year, I made a hilarious discovery. The chant being done by the Diablero, in that half-finished skyscraper, is "E-I-E-I-O" from "Old McDonald!"
