Limited Edition DVD Box Set Every Memorable Episode in One Huge Collection - Lowest Price Online Guaranteed McCloud is an American television police drama that aired on NBC from 1970 to 1977. The title role was played by Dennis Weaver as Marshal Sam McCloud, a law officer from Taos, New Mexico on semi-permanent "special assignment" with the New York City Police Department. The story began when a law officer was given a "Special Assignment" with the command on New York City Police Department and was assigned at precinct 21st. Marshal has on NYPD just to study the local police methods and where he can stay with his woman, Chris Coughlin who is the writer for his father's paper "New York Chronicle". He is also keen and brilliant investigator who garbs his talents in a Stetson and a sheepskin coat. The pilot, "Portrait of a Dead Girl", aired on February 17, 1970, and established the premise by having McCloud escort a prisoner from New Mexico to New York City, only to become embroiled in solving a complicated murder case. This premise of "a cowboy in the big city" was more or less adapted from the 1968 Don Siegel film Coogan's Bluff, starring Clint Eastwood. Herman Miller was responsible for the story of Coogan's Bluff and co-wrote the screenplay with Dean Riesner and Howard Rodman (indeed, Miller is credited as the creator of McCloud ). Coogan's Bluff reflects Richard Thorpe's great Tarzan's New York Adventure and the latter-day career of Bat Masterson. (Siegel himself appears in "Return to the Alamo" as "2nd Desk Sergeant".) Like Coogan, McCloud galloped the length and breadth of Manhattan (he was joined by a mounted unit in "The 42nd Street Cavalry"), and the absurd sight of McCloud on horseback riding down the middle of a busy street (taken from an early episode) became one of the series' iconic images. Starring: Dennis Weaver J. D. Cannon Terry Carter Ken Lynch
