Trivia

In the pilot of the series, Cannon drove a Mercury Marquis sedan (not a Mark III) . The car was wrecked by the bad guys in an attempt to scare Cannon off the case. Then, for most of the series, Cannon barreled around in a Lincoln Continental Mark IV(Mark III for the first season & a Mark IV for the remainder of the series). During the last part of the series' run, the chubby private eye's Cannonmobile was the Lincoln Continental Mark V(Not correct. The series ended in 1976. The Continental Mark V was introduced in 1977. The final year of the series was a 1976 Continental Mark IV) See more »

Dazzlingly athletic
30 October 2007 | by (SW UK) – See all my reviews

How ever did Frank Cannon manage to routinely catch assorted fleet-footed and well-motivated bad lads simply by lumbering painfully around his classic piece of early 70's, swimming pool-sized, rocking-suspensioned, Detroit iron lump? Especially with his red-faced wheezing, puffing signs of imminent cardiac disaster at the mere effort of just squeezing himself out of the door.

Then, without further pursuit (since Direction must have this week's villain keep running on the spot until our porcine pursuer catches up from around the other side the of car hood) immediately disable them with one blow on some random anatomical feature (such as a shoulder blade, say, or that well-known vulnerable bit on the top of the arm) from his flailing hammy forearm?

I'll never know. But there you go. It passed the time til Jim Rockford showed up. And it was A! Quinn! Martin! Production!
