Storyline

In 1901, Hec Ramsey is a former lawman who decides to take a job working in the newly formed Oklahoma police department. When he arrives the Chief of Police wonders what Hec can contribute. But the stage that Hec arrived in was robbed and a couple were killed and all signs lead the police to believe it was murder suicide. That's when Hec reveals that he's been studying on new methods of solving crimes like fingerprinting and ballistics. He uses these methods to disprove the murder suicide of the couple and to apprehend the stagecoach robbers. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Above average pilot for western mystery movie series
27 June 2001 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Richard Boone is superior as aging Hec Ramsey. Rick Lenz is fascinating in a character that provides a modern-leaning counterpoint to Ramsey's set ways. The always-resilient Sharon Acker is on hand to provide character. And, the ubiquitous Harry Morgan contributes his special brand of cynicism to a well-crafted, if somewhat leisurely paced, western mystery.
