Memories of Mystery and Murder

After an unplanned hiatus of several months, The Rap Sheet’s succession of 40th-anniversary tributes to the 13 shows that made up The NBC Mystery Movie (1971-1977) will resume today with a look back at Madigan, the short-lived Richard Widmark series spawned by director Don Siegel’s 1968 movie of the same name.

In case you haven’t been keeping up with these tributes, here are the programs we’ve covered thus far:

Columbo, starring Peter Falk
McCloud, starring Dennis Weaver
McMillan & Wife, starring Rock Hudson and Susan Saint James
Banacek, starring George Peppard

Please stay tuned over the coming months as we look back at such shows as Cool Million, Hec Ramsey, Tenafly, and Quincy, M.E.

You really miss these programmes they were wonderful. Doubt if the ones they produce now will stay the course.
