1963 CADILLAC TO “GUEST” ON “MIDNIGHT HOUR”
Season seven has many great moments in store for viewers...brain teasing whodunits, unforeseen twist endings, wildly offbeat suspense dramas and a few ghoulish murders for good measure.
Added to this bedeviling bouillabaisse is an old classic car for a modern classic show...a 1963 Cadillac convertible, outfitted in funereal triple black, scheduled to make at least one appearance on the series during the upcoming season.
The car has already been featured in special material shot for the series and plans are currently underway to devise a suitably macabre script in which to showcase the lugubrious automobile in all of its 18 feet, seven inches of steely goodness.
Longtime series viewers may remember a 1960 Plymouth Fury convertible which was featured in the season three episode, "Do Not Pass." In that supernaturally-themed episode, a ghostly vehicle tied to a long-hidden murder was used as an instrument of vengeance by someone with an axe to grind. However, series producers are considering a different approach for the 1963 Cadillac, ensuring another episode as unique in its storytelling as the “Midnight Hour” is as a series.
