McCloud

By Leona Jean

McCloud (Dennis Weaver) was a cowboy-hat wearing detective from Taos, New Mexico who found himself in New York chasing down a prisoner who had escaped from him. After he captured his man, he found himself on temporary assignment in Manhattan. He stayed on (for seven seasons!) in order to learn the methods used by a metropolitan police department.

McCloud and Sgt. Joe Broadhurst (played by Terry Carter) usually solved the crime. McCloud always had his own Southwestern take on justice and solved cases his way (rather than by the book). This was a source of tension between himself and both Sgt. Broadhurst and Chief Clifford (J. D. Cannon).

The most amusing aspect of the show was watching McCloud run around 1970s New York solving crimes dressed in a cowboy hat and  western clothes. His favorite phrase was "there you go". His romantic interest was a writer (Diana Muldaur) who had been working on a book about the criminal that McCloud came to New York to recapture.

McMillan and Wife, McCloud, and Columbo were the three original rotating series in the NBC Mystery Movies and Rod Serling's Night Gallery soon joined them.

Your Memories Shared!

McCloud was based on the 1968 Clint Eastwood film titled "Coogan's Bluff". which dealt with a Texas Ranger type going to New York City to Capture a Criminal who fled to the concrete canyons of New York City and dealing out frontier justice along the way.

Often Marshal Sam McCloud was often mistaken for a Texas Ranger or someone from Oklahoma or Arizona.
