Trivia

This was the first of four series from Quinn Martin Productions NOT to use announcer Dick Wesson or to show pictures of the guest stars during the opening credits (although the main title would end with a grainy photo of the chief villain). The other shows were Tales of the Unexpected (1979), The Runaways (1978), and A Man Called Sloane (1979). Simms continued with Barnaby Jones (1973) until QM virtually shut down in 1980. See more »

Sometimes, fortune smiles on you unexpectedly...

I still don't know what possessed me to look it up, but I luckily happened upon the fact that Amazon was offering the complete series DVD of Most Wanted for sale! I instantly snatched it up, and have been happily watching this long-ago, single-season, hidden Quinn Martin gem ever since! To be completely honest, I'd buy ANY DVD that had the Quinn Martin name attached to it, but I had a special fondness for this short-lived series! Typical of QM shows, Most Wanted had terrific guest stars, and well-written, though admittedly formulaic, stories! Robert Stack was very good as the series star, Jo Ann Harris was gorgeous, sexy and compelling in her role, and the late Shelly Novack, just one year before his death, was hugely entertaining in a star-making way, which unfortunately never happened for him! God, I loved Most Wanted! I am incredibly grateful that Amazon was able to put it out there for purchase!
