Product Description

Telly Savalas stars as the tough, lollipop-toting Detective Theo Kojak in eight gritty and unforgettable mystery movies from 1973 to 1990.

Created by Emmy and Academy Award winning writer Abby Mann, Kojak ran for five seasons on CBS from 1973 to 1978 and was later revisited as a series of TV movies. Along with these special broadcasts, this DVD set also features the previously unavailable pilot movie The Marcus Nelson Murders (aired in 1973), which started it all and earned Abby Mann an Emmy for Outstanding Writing.

Retail is $29.98 not $35 Nov. 23 2011
By Alatheia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A detailed listing of the movies can be found on the Shout Factory site. Shout Factory gives the list price of $29.98. Amazon may wish to correct their inflated list price.

SF lists the movies:
The Marcus-Nelson Murders (1973)
The Belarus File (1985)
The Prince of Justice (1987)
Ariana (1989)
Fatal Flaw (1989)
None So Blind (1990)
It's Always Something (1990)
Flowers For Matty (1990)

None of these movies are on the first or second season sets.

I love these pre-tech detective movies. Technology is no substitute for a keen mind and a knowledge of human nature. And Kojak mysteries always have a good escape quality; good wins, evil loses, and the viewer isn't immersed in gratuitous gore and perversion on the way.

My kojak dvd collection ends here.

Beautiful picture quality! Jan. 25 2012
By Allen Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Finally, "The Marcus-Nelson Murders" is on DVD. And just perfect as to the picture quality and sound quality. Brand-new looking for a 1973 movie, the master for this was great quality and maybe even further cleaned up. Watched it tonight upon receiving this pre-ordered item from Amazon.

A stunningly great movie as to the story, the Abby Mann script (1973 Emmy-winning), acting, etc. An infamous, sad, true story, based on NYC's "Career Girl Murders." Wonderful, not-found-anywhere-else, melancholy Andy Kim song used for the closing credits: "Don't Give Me A Road I Can't Walk." It's appropriately sad music and lyrics to close the show. The movie runs over 2:18.

"The Marcus-Nelson Murders" is the true story of a young, decent, poor, and mildly-mentally-challenged black man who was railroaded by the Manhattan police and D.A. for the 1963 murders of two white women in their 20s, and by the Brooklyn D.A. and police for the murder of a black woman and the attempted rape of a Puerto Rican woman, all separate incidents on different days. The young man told the police he didn't do any of these crimes, but by the next day, he had confessed, in great detail, in over 60 typewritten pages. Because, in actuality, . . . the police had beat it out of him. There are more twists and turns which I'll not mention here and which would ruin your viewing pleasure. (In real life, the young black man was named George Whitmore, Jr.) This story, as the movie notes, was one of the cases that formed the basis for the 1966 Supreme Court Miranda decision, requiring the police to read suspects their rights.

"The Belarus File", on the same disc #1, looks to be a soft-focus film-- literally it's recorded on film, not video, but not the high-quality film stock of "The Marcus-Nelson Murders." Didn't watch "The Belarus File" through, and never saw it before.

I haven't viewed the other discs yet, but this collection is worth it just for the magnificent copy of the now-released, great, "The Marcus-Nelson Murders" movie.

I Love Kojak, Baby Oct. 22 2012
By Mary E. Waters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Wow, I'm back to the good ol' days with Kojak. My husband and I never missed this
great series. Was this experience good? Well, you got that right. Start with the
series pilot, "The Marcus-Nelson Murders". It is SO scary. Telly Savalas IS Kojak--no one else could have done it; and all the other characters (My favorite is Marjoe Gortner as Teddy Hopper)--are great. If you want a groovy trip back in time, Kojak is your man. Who loves ya, Baby?

Kojak movies Sept. 10 2012
By Louise Angel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
My husband and I have enjoyed these movies so much. It was a treat to see them again. The movies are better than I remember them, especially the older ones. The Marcus Nelson murders is based on the true case that prompted the Miranda warning that is still required to this day. The Kojak character is played so well by Telly Savalas, hard-boiled on the outside but still human and feeling on the inside, and working under tremendous frustration at the system's injustices and failings. The movies hold up very well, they still seem relevant, although styles are dated. I am hoping to get my adult son to watch them to see how a younger person rates the movies.
