Overview

Season Three of The Fugitive finds the title character, Dr. Richard Kimble (David Janssen), still at large and on the run with a death sentence hanging over his head. Innocent of the murder of his wife, Kimble hopscotches from one community to another, assuming a vast array of identities and taking on a multitude of odd jobs as he searches for the genuine murderer, known only as the One-Armed Man. Dogging Kimble's trail at every turn is relentless police lieutenant Philip Gerard (Barry Morse), from whom the fugitive had escaped during a train wreck. The season opener "Wings of an Angel" features a guest performance by Sue Randall, best remembered for her portrayal of schoolteacher Miss Landers on Leave It to Beaver; ironically, Diane Brewster, who had appeared on Beaver as Miss Landers' predecessor Miss Canfield, continues to make sporadic flashback appearances on The Fugitive in the role of Kimble's soon-to-be-murdered wife Helen. And in the two-part "Landscape with Running Figures," Barbara Rush appears as Marie Gerard, wife of the tireless Lt. Gerard; in characteristic fashion, Kimble puts his freedom on the line to save Mrs. Gerard's life--while, equally in character, Gerard refuses to give up the chase. Subsequent third-season episodes are distinguished by such familiar TV personalities as William Shatner James Doohan, DeForest Kelley (none of whom appear in the same episode, worse luck!), Larry Blyden, Marion Ross, Norman Fell, Lee Meriwether, Wayne Rogers and Steven Hill. And in the episode "Wife Killer," the viewer is afforded a rare full-face glimpse of the elusive One-Armed Man, aka Fred Johnson (Bill Raisch). Tumbling from its second-season perch as America's 5th most popular series, The Fugitive didn't even make the "Top Thirty" during Season Three, suggesting that audiences were growing as weary of the search for the One-Armed Man as Richard Kimble had become. However, the show's viewership would increase immensely during its fourth and last season, a fact attributable to its switchover from black and white to color, and especially its highly anticipated final episode.
