Nancy Drew: Mystery of the Fallen Angels

Nancy Drew 1My wife and I recently watched an episode of the old Nancy Drew television show on Netflix. (It left Netflix at the end of last month.)

We chose the episode (1977’s “Mystery of the Fallen Angels”) basically at random and loved the fact that it featured a number of stars who would go on to greater acclaim later in their careers.


A Martinez, who’s probably best known for his work on Longmire and the soap opera Santa Barbara.

Robert Englund, who’s definitely best known as Freddie Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street movies (but has also done a lot of other work).

And Jamie Lee Curtis, who went on to fame in films like Halloween, Trading Places, True Lies, and The Tailor of Panama.
