Sam McCloud is a Marshal from Taos, New Mexico, who takes a temporary assignment in the New York City Police Department. His keen sense of detail and detecting subtle clues, learned from his experience, enable him to nab unsuspecting criminals despite his unbelieving boss.
The weekly adventures of Frank Cannon, an overweight, balding ex-cop with a deep voice and expensive tastes in culinary pleasures, who becomes a high-priced private investigator. Since Cannon's girth didn't allow for many fist-fights and gun battles (although there were many), the series substituted car chases and high production values in their place.Written by

My fovorite private detective TV show. Frank Cannon is the only private detective in TV history to solve every crime and never really get the girl in the end. (In the Biblical sense). If he wasn'n such a great cook, he never would have gotten a women up to that fabolus apartment on Sunset.
The Lincoln Continental Mark IV was great, and by the way with a mobil phone, (before cell for all of you born after 1984), and before Banachk had one. At least Frank drove his own car. All kidding aside, it was well written and whitty. I love the show and wish it would come back for reruns. Robert Conrad is one of my favorite actors. Check out some of his early work; "The Killers", "Body and Soul", "Sorry, Wrong Number". I hope he has a star on the walk of fame.
