Kojak starring Telly Savalas – ‘Out Of The Shadows’
I remember the time my wife and and took a vacation to NYC in the fall of 2002. It was a surreal experience: We saw a homicide victim on a sidewalk, had a confrontation with a would-be mugger (we walked away with our money, he walked away with a bloody nose), and saved a woman from being hit by a speeding taxicab. I have many fond memories of the locals: one night we went on a formal dinner cruise – a man noticed my service pin and shook my hand firmly (this was only a year after 911).
If it’s so hot why does the killer have a long sleeved shirt? lol
Sure the hazy hot humid 70s in NYC (the 3 H’s for those that remember the weather reports). Upper westside for me, no A/C. Open windows in the summer, just the sounds of the city to lull you to sleep. Remember when it got so hot the blacktop was melting, your shoes sink in as you step off the curb. Good times! Best city though! I miss it. I was there from 62 to 87.
croker made a boo boo and called kojak captain in the start of the video ,,kojak is a lieutenant….
is that murdered hooker in minute 16 pinkie tuscadero from happy days?
hey you guys know kojak its jeniffer anistons grandfather?
OMG! At 7:40 I am thinking, “Call in a unit to stop that truck!”
Well, if that heppened then this would be a 10-minute show.
Outstanding!!! Was too young to appreciate this show when it first aired. Discovered it in the 90s. One of the best cop shows ever!! Tremendous atmosphere!! Great cast! Would love to see more.
Who loves ya, baby?
@1Th1617 Grew up there then, but thankfully had the AC…great city…the greatest…
Hey, I love Kojak. I love almost all the cop dramas from the 1970′s I lkike the urban feel and how no matter what shape the cop was in he could always run up flights of stairs lol. The pants were tight and sexy back then giving it that extra bonus. Crocker was sexy and so were some of the bad guys. Kojak was sexy in a way.
I remember those sweet HOT NYC summers in the ’70s. I lived in a fifth floor walk-up in the Village and didn’t have an air conditioner. One night I actually woke-up at 3:00 a.m. to take a shower because I was covered in sweat!! YUCK!! Yet I wouldn’t trade my days in the (at that time) “the murder capital of the U.S.” for anything in the world. I loved NYC!!!
Does anyone know what or who is the framed drawing of on the wall behind Kojak that you see when he sits at his desk?
CROCKAHHH!!! love that
Telly Savalas, what a cool customer. And that voice! So resonant.
The only problem with this show was they was never an episode where the crime wasn’t solved without Kojack or one of his men solving the crime shooting someone.
With all the guys that Hollywood has sent through windows after being shot, you would think that just once, the falling body would take out some passerby.
You know, some little old lady walking her dog or some guy on his way to work. Just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Ahh well, thats Hollywood.
Kojak had style though,
KOJAK WAS A GREAT SHOW
Lara Parker was Angelique on Dark Shadows.
I love old american tv detective series from the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s, all the cities look like they’ve seen better days
LOVE Kojak; once saw Telly Savalas driving a silver Rolls Royce in Sunset Blvd and the license plate was “TELLY”
