Sam McCloud is a Marshal from Taos, New Mexico, who takes a temporary assignment in the New York City Police Department. His keen sense of detail and detecting subtle clues, learned from his experience, enable him to nab unsuspecting criminals despite his unbelieving boss.
The 1970-1971 television series, Four-In-One (1970), rotated four separate shows: Rod Serling's Night Gallery (1969), this show, San Francisco International Airport (1970) and The Psychiatrist (1970). Two series were renewed for the 1971-1972 season, with this show becoming the most popular and longest running.
He's slicker'n a greased shoat.
McCloud's accent is totally wrong for someone supposedly from Taos New Mexico. Taos is located in northern New Mexico, and Anglos there do not speak in that sort of accent, but rather more or less a general American accent.
Only the first season featured hour long episodes (47 minutes plus commercials). The pilot and subsequent seasons were 90 minutes or longer. For repeats, the six episodes of season one were edited together in pairs of two to form three 90 minutes installments. These were given the new titles 'Man from Taos'; 'Manhattan Manhunt'; and 'Murder Arena'. Some additional voice-overs by the main cast was added to imply connections between the story lines where originally there had been none.
