Wheelchair-bound detective Robert T. Ironside battles the bad guys on the streets of San Francisco.
Raymond Burr injured his eyes working on the series. Being in a wheelchair, he had to look up directly into the hot lights used to film his scenes, and his eyes were slightly burned.
Robert T. Ironside:
I... LIKE... burned toast.
Since he was a police detective, the van he used would have been his official police vehicle. As such, the license plate should have had an "E" exempt plate. However, it only had a standard California blue plate with 6 gold alpha-numeric characters.
Gene Lyons plays San Francisco Police Commissioner Dennis Randall. However, on some closing credits, Lyons is listed as "The Commissioner".
