Overview

Through a bizarre a twist of fate -- namely, a spectacular train wreck -- Dr. Richard Kimble David Janssen, wrongly condemned to death for the murder of his wife, is able to escape his captor, Lt. Philip Gerard Barry Morse, and to embark upon a nationwide odyssey in search of the One-Armed Man who was the actual killer of the unfortunate Mrs. Kimble. Though this scenario does not constitute the action in the debut episode of The Fugitive's first season, the series' premise would be firmly established in the pre-credits "teaser" that ran at the beginning of each and every Season One episode, accompanied by the stentorian narration of William Conrad. As in subsequent seasons, the first 32 Fugitive episodes find Dr. Kimble taking on a variety of odd jobs and assuming a number of false identities as he travels from town to town, hoping to either catch up with the One-Armed Man or otherwise prove his innocence. Also in each episode, Kimble's trail is dogged by the tireless Lt. Gerard, who has made it his mission in life to recapture the fugitive and deliver him to "Death Row, State Prison." The premiere episode "Fear in a Desert City" finds Kimble, six months after his escape, travelling under the name of Fred Lincoln in Tucson, Arizona Ironically, Tucson would serve as the locale for The Fugitive's legendary two-part series finale in August of 1967. Vera Miles and Brian Keith are the first of the series' multitude of guest stars, playing local citizens whose lives would be inexorably altered by Kimble's presence. In the weeks to come, Kimble would pop up in Missouri, West Virginia, California, New Mexico, Nevada, Washington, Alaska, Kentucky, Utah, Connecticut, Nebraska, Illinois, Ohio and Indiana Kimble's home state. Among the guest performers appearing during Season One are Sandy Dennis, Robert Duvall, Ruby Dee, Geraldine Brooks, Jack Weston, Leslie Nielsen, Jack Klugman, Bruce Dern, Telly Savalas, Eileen Heckart, Carroll O'Connor, Lee Grant and Gloria Grahame. In the episode "Home is the Hunted," Jacqueline Scott makes her first appearance as Kimble's married sister Donna Taft, who has always believed in his innocence and with whom he will sporadically remain in contact throughout the remained of the series. And in the two-parter "Never Say Goodbye," Kimble rescues Lt. Gerard from death, a selfless gesture that will occur time and again in the future--but which will not prevent the relentless Gerard from pursuing his former prisoner.

    One of the Greatest Dramas of TV's Golden Age

    Finally after years of lobbying for it 'The Fugitive' has finally been released on DVD. And it was well worth the wait. The Casting is from heaven. David Janssen, in his greatest and most definative role, is perfect as the wrongly accused but noble Richard Kimball [better even than Harrison Ford], and English born Barry Morse is marvelous as the obsessed American, Mid-westerner Jarred [much better than Tommy Lee Jones in his Oscar winning role], even the casting of the stentorian voice of William Conrad as the invisible narrator is perfection as is much of the plots and the writing. One is drawn in wonderfully to Kimball's moral decency and his desparation as he endures the many odd jobs beneath his considerable skills and great intelligence, endures the many threats of recapture and execution, endures the slander and the false belief that he is a killer, endures the anxiety of his noble and desparate hunt for the real murderer of his wife as well as his hopes of eventually clearing his good name. One identifies with him and with his plight. One can easily imagine 'There but for the grace of God go I'. You never stop rooting for this underdog. Fantastic - Bernard Tanner Jr.

    A major peak in series television

    In 1993, TV Guide named it the best dramatic series of the 1960's...David Janssen's* sensitive, involving performance as Kimble, Barry Morse's inspired borrowings from Dostoevsky, a galaxy of guest stars (often cast against what became their types: very early Duvall, Klugman, Nielsen, for example), superb b&w photography, hugely-varied, state-specific settings (although CA actually did yeoman work as its fellow states) and locale-specific characters all contributed to a more-than-the-sum-of-its-parts classic (often nail-biting) weekly suspense experience... the scripts were fascinating and focused on character motivation, often by suggestion rather than sledgehammer...most subtle of all, however, was Janssen's ability to combine a stoic mask with his one-of-a-kind slightly twisted wry smile, often at the same time...watch the first five (including the first 2-parter**), and I guarantee you'll want the other 115...Not to be missed
    *-Janssen was an army buddy of Clint Eastwood and Martin Milner in the early 50's...Milner & Janssen were instrumental in Eastwood's becoming an actor...during The Fugitive's first year, both Milner (Route 66) and Eastwood (Rawhide) also were starring in their own TV series...what did they feed them at Fort Ord?
    **-in which Janssen does a priceless 15 second Tony Curtis as Cary Grant imitation on a sailboat...(Some Like It Hot came out 4 years before...) Janssen's cleft chin makes me think he had been told of the resemblance many times...
