Trivia

The $7,000,000 that was stolen would be equivalent to about $33,500,000 in 2015 after adjusting for inflation. See more »

Goofs

In the final showdown, the villain (who has murdered a man for the clue to the missing $7 million and now is facing McCloud, who got to the clue first), says, "You're not giving me much of an out, McCloud. It's already murder one." In California, yes. In New York at the time, no. A murder-one charge was specifically reserved for killing a police officer conducting his duties, or a murder committed by a life term prisoner. New York didn't classify other crimes as murder one (and death penalty-eligible) until 1995, when they rewrote their statutes under a new governor. See more »

Quotes

Peter B. Clifford: Three men have died chasing that stupid Stetson of yours, McCloud! The papers are calling you "the man with the Golden Hat".

Jaclyn Smith and Roger Carmel...what could be better!
3 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Charlie's Angel and Harry Mudd plus an overlong plot...what could be better? An assortment of 70's characters and the ever-present, exasperated Chief Clifford. As ever, Joe Broadhurst plays it straight and is one of the funniest characters. The 'golden hat;' what a hoot! One of my favorite ever shows growing up. Who ever thought Chester would be a good star of this type show. In my book, he beats Marshal Dillon hands down! He earned his "spurs" in 'Duel' for sure. Amazing the old technology of the 1970's is like looking at the old west. What I really want to know is how Dennis Weaver could move like that when he had a limp in the 50's.
