Trivia

In this story, the grandfather chooses to die, mystifying the doctor. Stories around the origin of death and choosing when we die are common in Native American cosmological myth. Ultimately, many of the stories explain what we all know to be true: that death is inevitable and irreversible, and it's (usually) beyond our control. See more »

Sending Smoke Signals in Manhattan
23 November 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One fine day while Chief Clifford is briefing a team of police officers including his bane of existence Marshal Sam McCloud some smoke signals come from a nearby building. Dennis Weaver recognizes them as from White Mountain Apaches. On the roof is Chief Dan George from same come in from Arizona looking to attract attention.

The man has problems all right, a son in jail in Phoenix for a jewel robbery at a luxury hotel there and a grandson John Kauffman who has traced the crooks to New York City. Good thing George finds Marshal Sam McCloud a man steeped in Indian lore of his region..

The real crooks are high roller Allan Miller, psychotic Henry Gibson, and a disbarred lawyer and karate master, the voice of Monday night football then, Don Meredith. There's also Sharon Farrell the rather empty headed girl friend of Miller who has a heart of gold and helps McCloud.

Not one of the better McCloud stories, the characters are almost caricatures. Series fans will like the final confrontation with Dennis Weaver and Don Meredith however.
