Once Appeared In: The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries, “The Mystery of the Fallen Angels”

These iconic horror stars - one a villain, the other a heroine - appeared together early in their careers. In fact, this 1977 episode of The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries was one of the first acting gigs for each of them. Englund plays Gar, and Curtis plays Mary, a couple of no-good motorcycle carnies. They first appear at around the five-minute mark in this episode.
