Mission: Impossible: "The Catafalque"

Directed by Barry Crane, U.S.

Aired February 6, 1971 (Season 5, Episode 19)

A photobooth makes an ideal hiding place for one of the Impossible Mission Force's well-known self-destructing tape players. In earlier episodes, from 1966 and 1967, we've seen some strange and somewhat unfamiliar-looking booths.

In this episode, from 1971, Jim (Peter Graves, looking slightly shaggier) enters a Model 11 to find out the nature of his mission. The shot opens with the opening title, and slowly pulls back to reveal that the camera has been pointed into the mirror on the outside of a photobooth. We see Jim enter the booth and find his mission, complete with pseudo-photostrips of his targets.
