(CBS, 3/26/1971, 120 mins). In this pilot for the long-running series (1971-77), a portly, well-heeled investigator looks into the murder of an old flame’s husband and becomes enmeshed in a web of small-town corruption. Longtime character actor William Conrad finally attained stardom with this role. Previously he had been one of the great radio voices, a frequent screen and TV villain, a motion picture producer and director, and often narrator of Quinn Martin’s various productions on television as well as the classic “Rocky and Bullwinkle” animated series.
