Trivia

The Rifleman (1958) was scheduled for a sixth season in 1963, when Chuck Connors said he felt that five years in one series was enough. He was considered a hot property at the time, due to its success. "Eager for a change", he wanted to break out of the western mold. Connors signed a lucrative seven-year deal with Universal and Revue Studios that gave him profit participation, and allowed him to do at least one feature film a year. This show was the first project he committed to under his new contract. Originally slated to play Sergeant Anderson, Connors lobbied for, and received the part of, John Egan, a slick, top-flight criminal defense attorney. Ben Gazzara, on the other hand, had several impressive Broadway plays and Hollywood films to his credit, but had resisted doing a television series because, in those days, it could damage an actor's chances to appear on the big screen. However, Gazzara said that Broadway hadn't made him rich, and the film offers were not exactly rolling in. So, he signed on for this show for the financial security and exposure. Both actors were reportedly paid seventy-five hundred dollars a week, and Gazzara, like Connors, enjoyed profit participation. See more »

Ahead of Its Time.
15 July 2003 | by ldlazarusSee all my reviews

This short-lived series was excellent TV for its time.

Half the show was about the police and the other half was about the courts. In the context of some of the TV we see today, doesn't this have a familiar air about it?

"Law and Order"and it's various spin-offs are presently among the most popular shows on TV. This tends to suggest that "Arrest and Trial" was perhaps 40 years ahead of its time.
