Crazy Credits

This one did not feature the normal McCloud opening credit sequence of various shot of McCloud's derring-do. Instead it uses a lush romantic melody more like what is seen in a James Bond movie, with a shot of jewels slowly cascading down until they fill the screen. See more »

A lovely European jaunt
4 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

J.D. Cannon as Chief Clifford got some of his testiest with Dennis Weaver and Terry Carter as well when the two of them start chasing some stewardesses to Europe. Their little European jaunt sends them to London, Paris, Rome, and Monte Carlo. For the rest of us that lovely vacation package would be worth a fortune.

It all starts when Scotland Yard requests the NYPD help in regard to the murder of a stewardess in London. They want surveillance on her New York apartment. Well after finding a fortune in jewels, Dennis Weaver was not about to let this drop because he knew he was on to something big.

Weaver even gets to romance Britt Eklund one of the stewardesses doing the stealing and the smuggling. But it ends bad for her.

A nice collection of players in roles of the crooks and the law like Patrick O'Neal, Joann Pflug, Lincoln Kilpatrick, Marcel Hillaire, John Williams, and Jacques Aubuchon.

Poor Chief Clifford. He's a man who likes organization and he never did get a handle on McCloud's fly by the seat of your pants police technique (no pun intended). There's a lot less bureaucracy in Taos, New Mexico and that was what Dennis Weaver was used to. But J.D. Cannon never did learn to go with the flow.
