Overview

Wrongly sentenced to death for the murder of his wife, escaped prisoner Dr. Richard Kimble (David Janssen) continues to travel all over the country in search of the elusive One-Armed Man who actually committed the crime in Season Two of The Fugitive. Assuming such aliases as "Frank Borden," "Pete Broderick," "Paul Kelly," "Jim Russell," "Jeff Parker," "Stu Manning," "Steve Younger" and "Bill Douglas," Kimble takes on a variety of temporary jobs in a multitude of cities and towns, profoundly changing the lives of the local citizens on each occasion. Invariably, Kimble must hastily depart each destination as his relentless pursuer Lt. Gerard (Barry Morse), from whom Kimble had escaped en route to Death Row, closes in. It was during the series' second season that a persistent urban legend surfaced. According to rumor, the final episode of The Fugitive had been filmed, revealing that the murderer of Helen Kimble was neither her husband Richard nor the One-Armed Man, but instead Lt. Gerard, who intended to bump off Kimble in order to cover up his crime! Although the series' creator Roy Huggins and producer Quinn Martin denied that any such episode had been shot, they did little to discourage circulation of the rumor,undoubtedly figuring that any publicity was good publicity. Ironically, The Fugitive did not require an unfounded rumor to sustain audience interest: Ranking as America's 28th most watched series during its first season, the program had skyrocketed to fifth place during its second year on the air. Among this season's guest stars is Ed Begley, who in the season opener "Man in a Chariot" plays a character based on F. Lee Bailey, onetime defense attorney for Dr. Sam Sheppard, who was reportedly the real-life role model for Richard Kimble. In the later "Ballad for a Ghost," Janis Paige appears as a woman who bears a striking resemblance to Kimble's late wife (and never mind that the unfortunate Helen Kimble was generally portrayed in flashback sequences by Diane Brewster!) Other well-known performers appearing this year are Suzanne Pleshette, Diana Hyland, Kurt Russell, Arthur O'Connell, Tuesday Weld, Phyllis Thaxter, Strother Martin, Warren Oates, Angie Dickinson, Dabney Coleman, Harry Dean Stanton, Shirley Knight and Celeste Holm.

This release has been butchered by CBS Paramount Home Video, They replaced all of the original music with cheaper generic musical cues. Just imagine the sweeping score of GONE WITH THE WIND replaced by elevator Muzak, and you'll get an idea of how bad this release is. This is not THE FUGITIVE, and CBS Paramount should not be rewarded for this bastardized release. DO NOT BUY. If you bought it already, return it and demand a refund.
