Wheelchair-bound detective Robert T. Ironside battles the bad guys on the streets of San Francisco.
NBC abruptly cancelled the series in 1975 without airing three episodes: "The Organizer", "The Rolling Y", and "A Matter of Life or Death". They eventually aired in syndication.
Robert T. Ironside:
I... LIKE... burned toast.
Ironside's office/apartment was on the fourth floor of the Old San Francisco Hall of Justice. Stock footage of the building appeared on many episodes for the entire series run (1967-1974). The building itself was abandoned in 1961 and demolished in 1968.
Gene Lyons plays San Francisco Police Commissioner Dennis Randall. However, on some closing credits, Lyons is listed as "The Commissioner".
