Film and TV appearances
by Michael Parks


Note: TV series and specials are (usually) shown with full capitalization, e.g., ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR, THE, while theater and TV movies are shown with title case capitalization, e.g., Arizona Heat. Where there are significant differences between the sources (such as air dates or title or episode names), I have included the conflicting sources, separated by three slashes - ///. If you note any errors, or can add anything to this list, send me an email! To email me, click here.
