The weekly adventures of Frank Cannon, an overweight, balding ex-cop with a deep voice and expensive tastes in culinary pleasures, who becomes a high-priced private investigator. Since Cannon's girth didn't allow for many fist-fights and gun battles (although there were many), the series substituted car chases and high production values in their place.Written by

Frank Cannon was a pipe smoker. He was shown with a pipe in the first two seasons but it was seen occasionally in the third and fourth season before it was subsequently dropped altogether. In reality, William Conrad was a pipe smoker. See more »
Cannon frequently uses his mobile phone in his car but exterior shots of the car never shows the necessary antenna. See more »
Cannon & The Streets of San Francisco: Top Crime TV Series of 1970's
I agree with my previous speakers. CANNON is one of the best crime series of the 1970's, and definitely one of the best ever made. Watching the re-runs of CANNON is always a pleasure. The screenplay writers cared for a good plot, the directors did an excellent job as well. And, of course, a greatly performing William Conrad brought Frank Cannon to real life. Just love it.
