Overview

Synopsis

Introduced as a two-hour TV movie special in February of 1970, McCloud became a regular series in September of that year, joining San Francisco International Airport, Night Gallery, and The Psychiatrist as one of the rotating components of the weekly NBC anthology Four in One. During his first season on the air, Sam McCloud (Dennis Weaver), rough-hewn deputy sheriff of Taos, NM, regularly clashes with his by-the-book superior Chief Peter Clifford (J.D. Cannon) in his new temporary post with Manhattan's 27th precinct. The first of the season's six episodes is "Who Says You Can't Make Friends in New York City?," in which McCloud is sent packing back to Taos, only to be drawn into a delicate international mission in Paris when Chief Clifford is kidnapped. The next episode, "Horse Stealing on Fifth Avenue" finds McCloud's growing popularity, largely engendered by his journalist girlfriend Chris Coughlin (Diana Muldaur), complicating the ongoing police investigation of a series of drugstore robberies . In "The Concrete Corral," McCloud is assigned to escort a pair of cowboys at a visiting rodeo -- but even this innocuous assignment involves a baffling murder. In "The Stage is All the World," McCloud provides protection to a visiting British theatrical personality (Richard Dawson) who has been receiving death threats. "Walk in the Dark" finds McCloud assigned to help Special Auxiliary Force VI catch a killer stalking Central Park. And in "Our Man in Paris" McCloud and a plucky stewardess (Susan Strasberg) team up to locate a fugitive smuggler during his second trip to the City of Light. Since their original telecasts during the 1970-1971 season, these six hour-long McCloud episodes have been combined and re-edited as three feature films: Man From Taos, Manhattan Manhunt, and Murder Arena. ~ Hal Erickson
