U.S. Marshal Volume 4TV Series/Western
Box Office: $0.0M
PRINCIPAL CASTJohn Bromfield, Joe Turkel, Elinor Donahue, Mel Welles
DIRECTORRobert Altman, John H. Auer
This action-packed TV series stars John Bromfield as law enforcer Frank Morgan, whose Old West tactics are put to rugged use in modern day Arizona. Filmed mostly on location in the Tucson area, U.S. Marshal continued where Bromfield's earlier series, The Sheriff Of Cochise (1956-1958) left off. Bromfield's character was promoted from sheriff to marshal so he could work on bigger cases, in an attempt to broaden the show's appeal. Produced by Desilu, these four episodes are tough and engrossing crime dramas. Two of them are directed by acclaimed filmmaker Robert Altman, years before he made his breakthrough into motion pictures with M*A*S*H (1970).
DESTINATION NOWHERE: A hijacker turns a military truck carrying top-secret missile parts into a time bomb on wheels.
GHOST TOWN: Two escaped convicts hold an innocent woman hostage in a deserted ghost town.
HIGH FENCE: Morgan poses as a crook to catch a fence who's been laundering stolen money.
SHOOT TO KILL: A deranged killer terrorizes the wife and daughter of the man who once sent him to jail.
