I first saw Burt Reynolds back in 1959 in a TV series called RIVERBOAT.

We didn't really watch it because we watched something better on another channel....probably Richard Boone or Dale Robertson.....but as a kid, I knew who he was....

Then he moved to GUNSMOKE and we saw him all the time!

Then in 1966 he got his own show....HAWK.....a story about a Mohawk Indian police officer in New York.....it only lasted half a season and I LIKED it!!!  







Then came the movies......

Granada Television always kept strictly to the original Arthur Conan Doyle storyline.....sometimes simply condensing the action a little bit to make it move a little faster.....Excellent production values....
