  • I actually only have a vague memory of this episode.

    This is the back door way to paost a question. Does anyone know a source for THE Cat DVDs? I can not find a hint anywhere. I have been looking for the tapes or DVDs of this show for many years. THE Cat seems to have dropped right out sight and I have not understood why since I saw the series live in the 1960s. Yep I am getting up there. Aristovh at aol.com

    This is not the easiest way to find things I expect. This post has to be at least one hundred words long to be submitted and I don\\\'t think I have that much to say....moreless

    • Actress Norma Bengell, born in 1935 in Rio de Janeiro, appeared in 50 foreign films. This was her only appearance in a TV series in the U.S.

    • Two versions of this pilot exist. Two differences are evident, one major and one minor. The minor difference involves a snipped bit of dialog between Pepe and Cat, as they tell Pepe's daughter that each had at one time saved the other's life. The major difference involves the next to last scene. In both versions Capt McCallister gets injured. In the unaired version, Cat visits a bedridden McCallister and informs McCallister that Smith died at the hands of his mob superiors after he failed to kill the priest. In the aired version McCallister meets up with Cat at the Casa del Gato, and after Cat inquires of his recovery, asking if he's well enough to be there, McCallister tells Cat the info about Smith's fate.
