- Sammy Davis Jr.
- Christopher Lee
- Jack Klugman
A bumbling assistant to Satan (Sammy Davis Jr.) hasn't gotten a soul for him for 1400 years. He gets one last chance when he's assigned get the soul of a down and out retail department store accountant (Jack Klugman).
It's easy to see why this was not picked up as a series. The best performance is by Adam West, who gleefully plays the villain.
All that's memorable about this pilot is historical. You see outdoor scenes in San Francisco, and the clothing of the time. In this pilot a character is trying to get in touch with the underworld, and starts to phone the Church of Satan downtown. Satan (a youthful-looking Christopher Lee) uses the upside-down pentagram, with horns on it. The 2 fingered sign of Satan with a twist of the wrist, enables a devil to disappear.
Sammy Davis who plays a devil was for a time a member of the Church of Satan. He socialized with the LaVeys and wore his Church of Satan medallion in public.
