Starsky & Hutch bring ’70s style to MCM London
There’ll be a ‘70s swagger to October’s MCM London as Starsky, Hutch, and Huggy Bear bring their crime-busting cool to the ExCel London show. The classic cop show’s star trio—David Soul, Paul Michael Glaser, and Antonio Fargas—will be meeting fans and signing autographs on the Saturday and Sunday of comic con (October 27-28).
Glaser and Soul played the U.S. series’ titular detective duo, streetwise Brooklynite David Starsky and his more intellectual partner Kenneth ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson, while Fargas was the show’s breakout star as extravagantly-dressed police snitch Huggy Bear.
Originally airing from 1975 to 1979, Starsky & Hutch saw Glaser’s and Soul’s characters cracking crimes in the fictional Bay City, California—cases that usually included a visit to their jive-talkin’ confidential informant Huggy Bear, and a pedal-to-the-metal car chase in the ‘Striped Tomato’, Starksy’s famous bright red Ford Gran Torino.
