      Was Death of Me Yet taken from TV show Assignment Munich, then moved to Vienna??

        I’m sure Doug McClure got the CR Grover part due his affiliation with Leslie Stevens producing the “Trampas” episodes on the last year of the Virginian AKA “The Men from Shiloh”. However I’m sure his performance in “The Death of Me Yet” a year prior to Search probably helped convince the producers that McClure could play more than a Cowboy and would be a convincing spy. I always find it fun to watch actor playing a similar role prior to their break out role.
       
       Examples: Henry Winkler played a character not unlike the Fonz in 1974’s “The Lord’s of Flatbush”.  Ron Howard played a character named Steve Bolandar who was definitely could have been the template for  Richie Cunningham.
      The producers of Starsky & Hutch stated that David Soul was hired solely based on his performance in 1973’s Magnum Force.  I was watching a  Six Million Dollar Man episode “Steve Austin, Fugitive” last week  and there was Bernie Hamilton playing a Lt. Dobbs who acts an awful like Captain Dobey. This episode aired five months before the premiere of S &H.

      I checked and cannot find that it has ever been released commercially.  I found it on one of the sites I frequent to get unofficial and unreleased titles.
