The Night Stalker

dan oakland john productions

(ABC, 1/11/1972, 90 mins). A flip, down-on-his-luck newspaper reporter stumbles across a modern-day vampire who is murdering Las Vegas showgirls, but he cannot convince his own editor, let alone the police, of the identity of the crazed maniac. The now-cult lighthearted thriller that eventually spawned the regrettably brief series of the same name (1974-75) with Darren McGavin and Simon Oakland continuing their roles was the highest rated made-for-TV movie up to that time.
