Checkmate was one of the best television dramas to come out of the 1960s, combining great scripts, locations and casting. Created by thriller-writer Eric Ambler and filmed on the streets of San Francisco, the series revolves around private investigators and their quest to prevent crimes before they happen. The show's haunting, iconic music, composed by John Williams, is perfectly suited for Checkmate's San Francisco setting, of fog-filled streets, sweeping ocean views and cable cars.
For the first time on DVD, the complete television series CHECKMATE starring Doug McClure, Anthony George and Sebastian Cabot, all 70 episodes from 1960 to 1962 on 12 dual-layer discs for the best picture and sound quality.
