Storyline

"That was the Arizona territory in 1880, and I was its chief marshal." So began this western series starring Henry Fonda as Simon Fry. Unfortunately, Fonda's character was fully integrated into the plot in only six of the episodes of the first season and thirteen in season two. In all other episodes he appeared only briefly, generally at the start of the episode and again at the close. Fonda did narrate most episodes. Fonda worked for ten weeks on season one, for example, shooting all of his scenes during that time, which left the rest of the year free for film and theater work. While Allen Case tried hard as the title character, Clay McCord, the series is well- known for the substantial differences in quality between what the series producers (and Fonda himself) came to call the "Fonda" and "Non- Fonda" episodes.

IMDb mistake
25 August 2006 | by (Studio City, CA) – See all my reviews

Beware. The DVD cover presented by IMDb and the DVD from Amazon.com are not from this series. Legendary Lawmen is a different series. The Deputy has not been released on DVD or VHS as of September 1, 2006. Some of the episode copyrights were renewed by Universal City Studios, Inc., which now is owned by the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), which is owned by General Electric (GE).

Also, the program music theme by Jack Marshall is under copyright so even if some episodes are in public domain, the theme music is under copyright. There were seventy-six episodes produced by Top Gun Productions.
