Fear of High Places, first telecast September 20, 1968, was the opening episode of the weekly 90-minute TV adventure series Name of the Game. The series featured three stars: Gene Barry, Tony Franciosa and Robert Stack, each playing employees of Crime Magazine, and each appearing once every three weeks. This episode concentrates on Franciosa, as he investigates the death of a beautiful model. The murder is possibly tied in with industrialist Robert Webber, who is about to assume an important government post.
