This movie is about a man who is the descendant of the character, Josh Randall from the television series, WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE, who was played by Steve McQueen. In most movies that were inspired by television series, they try to have one of the actor's from the original series in a cameo or supporting role. Like Ernest Borgnine of McHale's Navy, James Garner of Maverick, and John Forsythe of Charlie's Angels. Or like in the case of Sgt. Bilko which starred Phil Silvers, his daughter, Cathy appeared in the movie. Now the only star and regular on the show was Steve McQueen, and he had already departed, when this movie was done. But except for a brief reference, there was no other mention of the character of Josh Randall. As I said, he was already gone, as were most of the actors who worked on Dragnet, but it was interesting that the picture of the show's star, Jack Webb was on the desk of the movie's star Dan Ackroyd. So, why could they have had a picture of Steve McQueen, somewhere like on his boat or his office or the gun that Steve McQueen used on the series. So there could be some kind of link to the show.
