Editorial Reviews

The weekly adventures of Frank Cannon, an overweight, balding ex-cop with a deep voice and expensive tastes in culinary pleasures, who becomes a high-priced private investigator. Since Cannon's girth didn't allow for many fist-fights and gun battles (although there were many), the series substituted car chases and high production values in their place.

William Conrad had been around for quite some time before he became best known for being private eye Frank Cannon in the Quinn Martin television series, "Cannon." He had been an actor, producer, and director for movies and television shows, and was best known for three programs that used his voice only - being the voice of Matt Dillon on the radio version of "Gunsmoke," the narrator of the classic cartoon series "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle," and the narrator of another Quinn Martin series, "The Fugitive."

When Martin looked for someone to play an overweight, but very capable private eye in Cannon, he could have picked a better actor than Conrad. Even though he was best known for his vocal talents, Conrad made Cannon a flesh and blood character - charming, humorous, compassionate, and on occasion, violent. For once, Conrad had a chance to show as much talent on camera as he had off camera. And with Martin's penchant for creating solid detective dramas, Cannon became a very popular series.

Conrad would have other notable gigs after Cannon, the emcee of CBS' Thanksgiving Day festivities, the DA in "Jake and the Fatman," and for too brief a time, "Nero Wolfe," but he will always be remembered at the portly detective who drove a Mark IV, had a car phone (very rare at the time), and who knew as much about cooking as he did the law.

This is a great show. And it is when TV was fun to watch. Now TV is about 95% trash... Cannon with Barnaby Jones, Mannix and the rockford Files. was a great time for TV.. The only bad deal with Cannon is the Vol one and two bit. That is one big draw back..
They really need to give you all of the season at onetime.

cannon is one of the best private eyes on the classic television list of shows
to order. I recommend purchasing it. So far I have enjoyed watching this
show and would recommend it to everyone to watch it again as it have been
along time since it was on TV. This show was purchased on Amazon and I have
purchase alot of the old shows from Amazon. They are very good about shipping
it fast.

Cannon, which ran for 5 seasons from 1971 to 1976, was a terrific detective mystery series led by the incredibly fit big actor William Conrad. They didn't have altering computers or trick cameras back then, and besides him being a wonderful dramatic actor (see The Killers with Burt Lancaster), he appears to be actually doing most of his athletic stuntwork and definitely all the chasing of the criminals. He had a gruffly endearing manner as Detective Frank Cannon, and the stories were intelligently written and peppered with many popular TV and film stars of the day, some listed below next to their featured episode of this Season Two, Volume 2 3DVD set:

Disc 1

Nobody Beats the House - John Marley, Tom Skerritt
Hard Rock Rollercoaster - Charlotte Stewart, John Vernon
The Dead Samaritan - Arlene Golonka, David Hedison
Death of a Stone Seahorse - Sondra Locke, David Soul

Disc 2

Moving Target - Susan Oliver, Richard Carlson
Murder For Murder - Dick van Patten, Mary Frann
To Ride A Tiger - Christine Belford, Scott Marlowe
Prisoners - Geraldine Brooks, Harold Gould

Disc 3

The Seventh Grave - Barry Nelson, Jim Davis
Catch Me If You Can - Anthony Zerbe, Dana Wynter
Press Pass to the Slammer - Marlyn Mason, Stuart Margolin
Deadly Heritage - Beverly Garland, Lynn Marta

The second season of Cannon finishes up in 1973 on DVD with a continuation in the tradition of faded images and bleak color from inferior masters. Frank Cannon looks great making an appearance on the premier episode of Barnaby Jones from 1973, another Quinn Martin series, for which CBS did a far superior job of transferring to DVD than Cannon. Hopefully CBS will up the film elements of Cannon to the standard of their first early '70's Quinn Martin series on DVD, The Streets Of San Francisco, which looks marvelous.

Great show, but as is the case with many Universal/Paramount releases, they simply stop releasing DVD's after a few seasons if they think that the show isn't selling well enough: Even if the low sales are because of splitting seasons into volumes and ultimately charging twice as much per season. They are notorious for ending the release of a series after a season or two. Some real geniuses working there. I'm now stuck with partial runs of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Night Gallery, etc... and now Cannon. If you like to collect full runs of classic TV shows like I do, it's almost better not to buy the first seasons from Universal/Paramount in the first place. They're the the worst, and obviously couldn't care less about their customers.
