Before he appeared in RYAN'S DAUGHTER, and won his Oscar, and long before he got knighted, John Mills was in this summer replacement series on American television. He was an English lawyer who comes to America and practices law with Sean Garrison (obviously an Irish-American, nicknamed "the Culhane"). It was pretty well produced, and the stories had merit. In one they are defending a man on a murder charge, brought by his fellow miners (this is frequently a theme in the shows about "frontier justice"). The problem is that Mills/Dundee worked, as a boy, in a mine, and survived a cave-in. His nervousness is increasing during the episode, and the issue is will it damage his effort to win an acquittal for his client or not. Each episode is different that way. In one he and Garrison win the acquittal of the defendant, only to have Dundee tell the defendant that he is going to see that the police arrest him for another murder he has discovered the defendant committed. It had some good character actors in support: Claude Atkins and George Coulouris were in different episodes, among others. It also had a theme song that was very jaunty (no lyrics). I can still hear it to this day. It was a good series, but did not get a large enough audience - so it was never renewed. Pity, it should have been.
