After an unplanned hiatus of several months, The Rap Sheet’s succession of 40th-anniversary tributes to the 13 shows that made up The NBC Mystery Movie (1971-1977) resumes today with a look back at Madigan, the short-lived Richard Widmark series spawned by director Don Siegel’s 1968 movie of the same name.
You’ll find that post here.
And in case you haven’t been keeping up with these tributes, here are the programs I’ve covered thus far:
• Columbo, starring Peter Falk
• McCloud, starring Dennis Weaver
• McMillan & Wife, starring Rock Hudson and Susan Saint James
• Banacek, starring George Peppard
Please stay tuned in the coming months as I look back at such series as Cool Million, Hec Ramsey, Tenafly, and Quincy, M.E.
