Episode Notes
Both "Gordy the Ghoul" and Monique Marmelstein appear for the first time in this episode, and before it's over Kolchak puts Monique in a cab heading to Brooklyn. She's back by the next episode though.

This is one of only two episodes in the series in which Ron "Uptight" Updyke does not appear, the other is episode #20 "The Sentry".

Kolchak's informant "The Monk" appears here for the first and last time, he's never seen again during the show's run.

Alex Grasshoff directs his first of three episodes with "The Zombie", the others were #8 "Bad Medicine" and #10 "The Energy Eater".



Episode Quotes
Carl: (opening narration) Popular folklore would have us believe that there exists in the underworld ruthless men who fear nothing. This story should debunk that myth.

Carl: (voice over on his relationship with the Chicago Police Department) Captain Leo Winwood and I had a relationship that was long and bloody, like the Crusades, only without the chivalry.

Carl: François Edmonds, the deceased, was buried a third time at public expense – a third time. However, this time, rock salt was poured in his mouth, and his lips were sewn shut. City officials will deny this, but you can see it for yourself, if, IF, you’d care to venture out to Saint Lucie’s cemetery, and exhume the corpse. Be my guest. If you’ve got the nerve...

(about one of his informants)
Carl: The Monk was of a lower order. He had never taken the vows of poverty or silence.

(Carl narrates over a scene of Albert Berg having his spine turned to shrapnel.)
Carl: Bad as my problems were at that moment, they were nothing compared to those of Albert Berg.
