Storyline

Citizens of San Francisco are stunned by the news that Robert Ironside, the city's hard-nosed, tough-talking chief of detectives, has been shot and left for dead while vacationing at his friend the Police Commissioner's rural retreat. Ironside survives the murder attempt, but the bullet has damaged nerves in his spine, leaving him a paraplegic. Unable to gain reinstatement as chief of detectives, Ironside gets permission to continue investigating criminal cases as a citizen volunteer. With the assistance of two former protegees, Det. Sgt. Ed Brown and Officer Eve Whitfield, and a newly-hired aide/driver, Mark Sanger, Ironside sets out to solve his first case as a civilian by finding the people responsible for the attempt on his life. Written by Michelle Sturges

Marvelous combination of grit, humor, and character study
3 August 2001 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

This 1967 TV-movie captured the spirit and substance of mid-60's San Francisco far better than anything essayed by big budget Hollywood. Goldstone's use of music and cinematography and choice of backgrounds are all superb. The script is taut, witty, fast-paced, and wise. The dialogue is completely credible. And, the acting of the team was so complementary that the series based on this movie ran for six years. But make no mistake, if no series ever followed, this remarkably taut character study would stand on its own merits.
