Langdon Alger asks Lisa to go with him to the dance just after he dumped Janey.Bart, trying to get Lisa to dump him, succeeds when she sees that he is still in love with Janey.After host Jim Lange introduces "successful photographer" Alcala ("You might find him skydiving or motorcycling!"), Bradshaw asks him, "What's your best time?(He remains in prison in California.) While Alcala's body count is unknown, police estimate the now-73-year-old man killed at least dozens of women, with some counts running as high as 130 – and there are still over 100 photographs of unidentified women who may have been his victims.But in 1978, two years before the murder conviction, there he was: Bachelor Number One.
Tali Shapiro was raped and beaten with a steel bar, but because her parents refused to let her testify at Alcala's trial, he was paroled in 1974 after spending 34 months in jail on a lesser charge of child molestation. Alcala enjoyed photographing his victims – mostly attractive young women – after murdering them and putting their corpses in distorted, grotesque poses.
But now donning a sharp, brown suit and butterfly collar, Alcala had other things on his mind: Winning the affection of bachelorette Cheryl Bradshaw.
Watching the clip today, knowing that Bachelor Number One would go on to repeatedly choke his victims to unconsciousness and wait until they came to before killing them, their banter is more terrifying preview than goofy innuendo.
Alcala's death sentence in the Samsoe murder was overturned twice.
But in 2010, he was once again sentenced to death for the murder of five women, though authorities have still been unable to pin down a precise victim count.
