Man on the Prowl was produced by Jo and Art Napoleon, the same team responsible for TV's The Whirlybirds. James Best stars as Doug Gerhardt, a young homicidal maniac who invades the home of housewife and mother Marian Wood (Mala Powers). Having already killed a girl who turned him down, Gerhardt threatens to harm Marian's children if she doesn't give in to him. He also intends to take over the garage owned by Marian's husband Woody (Jerry Paris). Ted de Corsia, taking a breather from his usual screen villainy, plays the homicide detective who may be Marian's only hope for salvation.
