McCloud

Show Summary

Deputy Marshal Sam McCloud of Taos, N.M. is assigned to the 21st Precinct of the New York Police Department to study local police methods, where he can stay close to his girl, Chris Coughlin, a writer for her father's paper, the New York Chronicle. McCloud is a keen and brilliant investigator who garbs his talents in a Stetson and a sheepskin coat. "There ya go" is his byword. Chief Clifford's disregard of his manner frequently puts him in unavailing positions, but his original view of the city allows him to follow difficult cases to often far-reaching conclusions. McCloud is a variant of Don Siegel's 1968 film masterpiece Coogan's Bluff, and features elaborate writing, bold action, and the quintessence of high comedy. Dennis Weaver was nominated for an Emmy in 1974 and 1975.

  • A Television series that was part of The "NBC Sunday Night Mystery Movies" wheel series. Dennis Weaver play the part of Marshal Sam McCloud of Taos, New Mexico. This show was based on a 1968 Clint Eastwood film titled "Coogan's Bluff".moreless

    A classic show from Universal Studios. Dennis Weaver puts in a fine performance as The Marshal from Taos New Mexico. He is usually confused with some who comes from Arizona, Texas or Oklahoma. In a couple of episodes someone called him "Tex" being he was from Texas or a member of The Texas Ranger. McCloud goes to New York City to learn about Big City police work with New York's Finest and giving his cantankerous boss Chief Peter B. Clifford and his partner Sgt. Joe Broadhurst lesson in frontier justice.



    Diana Muldar has a recurring role as Christine "Chris" Coughlin, McCloud's Girlfriend. and there are guest stars galore with Carl Betz(The Donna Reed Show), Gig Young(Academy Award For "They Shoot Horses, Don't They"), Larry Hagman(I Dream Of Jeannie, Dallas), Teri Garr, John Denver, Ed Ames, Jessica Walter, Ross Martin, Harry Guardino and many others.



    This series was based on a 1968 Clint Eastwood Movie titled "Coogan's Bluff. Which was about a Western type lawman going to New York City To pick up an escaped criminal only to lose him in the concrete canyons of New York City but he gets his man with or without the help of New York's finest.moreless
  • Great Family Show

    This is a great family show

    And wished that it was back on

    Loved it when it was paired with Colombo

    It starred Dennis Weaver as Deputy US Marshal Sam McCloud

    Assigned to the NYPD, who's LT didn't like it at all

    As McCloud would rather use his instincts and before MacGyver, not use a gun that much

    And use things of the old wild west

    But despite his and the NYPD's differences

    He managed to get his man!

    Please bring it back!moreless
  • There you go.

    9.0
    McCloud was a 90 minute series that aired as part of NBC's mystery movie trilogy along with Columbo and McMillain and Wife. Though not as well remembered or received as Columbo, McCloud was an entertaing show for its time and it still holds up pretty well when viewed today. The storyline concerned Marshal Sam McCloud from Taos, New Mexico who was assigned to temporary duty with the New York Police Department. McCloud's unorthodox style and methods continually exasperate and frustrate his boss, Chief of Detectives Peter B. Clifford. The series was loosely based on the 1968 movie Coogan's Bluff which starred Clint Eastwood as a Southwestern lawman persuing a fugitive to New York and his ensuing cultural clashes with some of the natives.



    The show obviously had a big budget because they filmed episodes all over the world in places such as Great Britain, Australia, and France and its production values were always first class. Despite the exotic settings of many episodes, the show's focal point was always the interplay between Dennis Weaver's McCloud and J. D. Cannon's Clifford. Those two had some skirmishes but what made things work was that you knew deep down that the two men really respected each other.moreless
