Trivia

This episode aired against (and got clobbered in the ratings by) the ABC Sunday movie-of-the-week "Little Ladies of the Night," which in turn was attributed (by Variety) to have taken its inspiration from a "McCloud" episode "The Barefoot Girls of Bleecker Street" (episode 5.1). See more »

Goofs

McCloud's gun makes four different sounds when he fires it during the episode, including two different sounds on consecutive gunshots. (Keith Hampton's gun also makes two different sounds on consecutive shots; he and McCloud are firing at each other.) See more »

Crazy Credits

For American television, the opening of this show is a cut-down version of the classic main title (stopping after the fourth guest star; the remaining credits are shown over establishing shots in the show itself). But for German television (Ein Sheriff in New York: Die Racherin"), a title sequence from the 1974-75 season is used with the names freshly reprinted. But they left out producers Ronald Satlof and Michael Sloan and co-writer Sloan! See more »

McCloud's weapon
5 June 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

My problem with this particular McCloud episode is that it never should have gone down the way it did. Dennis Weaver who is on stakeout trailing a particular cabdriver with Terry Carter is accused of shooting his quarry James Ingersoll in the back. The reason is because of the hog leg colt.45 McCloud carries. That's what ballistics show. But as McCloud pointed out he's not the only one in New York with such a western weapon. The police forensics team should have been able to clear him and determine it wasn't his particular .45 that did the job.

Ingersoll was an illegal alien who obtained a hack license through the connections of the cab company owner who is using his particular set of illegal alien cab drivers as drug mules. Said owner is the dapper George Hamilton who is quite rich and well connected.

Of course in the end the mystery is solved, but I can't believe that it should have take them this long.
