A strangler of women -- including an undercover cop -- moves through Central Park with the greatest of ease, and McCloud, a sergeant and two policewomen must track him down before he kills again.
Did You Know?
Sgt. F.J. Cameron watches McCloud on a firing range, impressed by his marksmanship, but puzzled when McCloud stops firing after only five rounds. McCloud explains to her that he always leaves the first chamber empty (with the hammer on it) to prevent the hair-trigger weapon from accidentally discharging as he draws it. This was a common practice with Colt .45 revolvers in the Old West, but McCloud never does it again (often firing more than six shots in a gunfight). See more
During the opening-credit sequence, the young woman who will be the strangler's next victim walks at night, in thinly-disguised day-for-night, in the nighttime again, and is finally grabbed in a day-for-night sequence. It's possible that this sequence includes stock footage added in to pad the time spent on the credits (since they are covering two shows simultaneously). See more
Police Sergeant F.J. Dameron
McCloud, you're gonna hear from me on two counts. One: I'm gonna file an official complaint. And two: I'm gonna attach a recommendation for exceptional service.
