Synopsis by Paul Durica
Aboard the luxury liner Hanover to cover the ship's final voyage and a concurrent convention of middle-aged swingers, reporter Carl Kolchak (Darren McGavin) must convince an authoritarian captain a werewolf is responsible for the disappearance of several passengers. He must also find someone among the swingers who can speak Latin and bless some peculiar silver bullets. This episode makes good use of a unique and claustrophobic setting. Trapped aboard ship, Kolchak has to fight rather than flee both the monster and the unwanted advances of a divorcée. Eric Braeden, best known as Victor Newman on daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless, plays the eponymous creature in makeup making him look like famed sideshow attraction Jo-Jo the Dog-Faced Boy. Dick Gautier, who played Hymie the Robot on Get Smart, guest stars as Kolchak's lusty cabinmate. The fourth installment in the series, "The Werewolf" originally aired November 1, 1974, on ABC.
