Question: I had a huge crush on Edward Mulhare before he was on Knight Rider, going way back to The Ghost & Mrs. Muir. My question is: How did Captain Gregg die in order to become a ghost? Thank you for your help.
Answer: A 19th-century sea captain, Daniel Gregg (the late Mulhare, who did indeed appear on Knight Rider, as F.L.A.G. head Devon Miles) was asphyxiated in his sleep when a gas heater was knocked over. As if that weren't enough to make him a grumpy spirit, his death was reported as a suicide, which set him up to be none too welcoming to his greedy nephew's (Charles Nelson Reilly) prospective tenants in contemporary times. (The series ran for a year on NBC, beginning in September 1968, and was then picked up for another season by ABC.)
