A running gag had Kimble staying in the rundown 'Edmund Hotel' in many episodes. This was due to many scenes being filmed on the studio backlot, where the art director had created a standing set of a typical downtown street, including the false-front entrance to the 'Edmund Hotel'. This gave the impression, as Kimble crisscrossed the country, that nearly every major American city had a fleabag 'Edmund Hotel' in which Kimble could find lodging. See more »

Among shows with an ultimate goal,this is indeed the best.
I have an undying passion for shows that set their sights on an ultimate goal.What placed this series at the top of the list of such shows is the idea of clearing the name of a man wrongly convicted of murdering his wife.Knowing that he was innocent,made you want to jump into your set and help him out,for only he,and the man he sought,the infamous one armed man,knew dead certain of his innocence.Being too young for the series' original run,I became a fan through the old reruns back in the 1980's. The series was indeed thrilling,though the acting was not always good. It is perhaps for the best that I was not around when the show ran originally,because I probably could not have gone through the torture of waiting 4 years for this man to be set free.Kudos to David Janssen and Barry Morse for giving us such thrills.If you ever have the chance to pick up on the reruns of this great story,do it! You won't be let down.Classic TV!
