* SpecialGuest: Especially during its heyday, the show was able to draw a lot of high-powered talent as guest stars. Creator/VincentPrice, Creator/GeorgeSanders, Creator/WilliamShatner and Creator/LeonardNimoy (their first pairing, before ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''), Barbara Feldon (before she hit it big with ''Series/GetSmart''), Yvonne Craig (before ''Series/{{Batman}}''), Cesar Romero ([[Series/{{Batman}}pre]]-ComicBook/TheJoker), Jack Lord (pre-''Series/HawaiiFiveO''), Creator/JoanCollins, Ivan Dixon, Richard Kiel, Julie London, Creator/LeslieNielsen, Creator/JoanBlondell, Creator/JanetLeigh, Anne Francis, Senta Berger, Jill Ireland (at the time David [=McCallum=]'s wife), Creator/AngelaLansbury, Creator/KurtRussell, Eleanor Parker (who had the honor of being the series' last villainess), Dorothy Provine, [[Music/SonnyBono Sonny]] and Music/{{Cher}} and Nancy Sinatra, among others. Could also be seen as StuntCasting.
** Honorable mention: Elsa Lanchester as Dr. Agnes Dabree in "The Brain-Killer Affair" (Season 01, Ep. 23). Still [[NightmareFuel inspiring nightmares]] years later... Creator/JoanCrawford had a cameo as Andrea True in "The Five Daughters Affair". It was a blink-and-you'll-miss-it kind of thing in the TV episode, but her part was beefed up a little for the movie version, ''The Karate Killers''.
