Trivia

Widmark had agreed to do his first (and it turned out, only) TV series shortly after finishing "Vanished," the four hour TV movie that marked his television dramatic debut. Originally, Widmark was to star in a series based on his second TV film, "Brock's Last Case," in which he played a NYC detective who retires to a farm in California. NBC, the network for whom Universal was producing the show, had second thoughts about the concept, and instead asked Widmark to reprise "Madigan," the 1968 theatrical film that earned strong ratings when it was broadcast on the network in 1969. Widmark agreed providing half the shows were filmed in Europe. See more »

Best TV Cop of All

No one has ever played a detective (the kind that bends the rules) as well as the great and often overlooked Richard Widmark. The six 90-minute episodes that comprise this series remain fresh in my memory despite the fact that I have not seen the show since its rebroadcasts on the CBS Late Movie in the U.S. during the mid-70s. Without Widmark, there may not have been a whole lot to distinguish the show from a lot of other cop dramas of the decade, but his performance always made it more than a cut above routine. I find these shows (especially "The Manhattan Beat" and "The London Beat" episodes) far superior to director Don Siegel's 1968 theatrical feature that inspired this short-lived NBC-TV series. Now if only these shows were available on video or even in syndication.
