Roy Huggins Trivia


  • Trivia

    • For years Huggins was accused of basing The Fugitive on the real-life case of Dr. Sam Sheppard. Sheppard, who was convicted of murdering of his wife, claimed that she had been killed by a bushy-haired intruder he saw running from the scene - and was later acquitted. Huggins originally intended for his villain to have red hair, but because that was too common a characteristic (and perhaps too close to "reality"), he chose to have him be a one-armed man instead. Roy always denied that Richard Kimble was based on Sam Sheppard.
