The Fugitive, broadcast for four seasons on ABC-TV from 1963 to 1967, is on the run again. Dr. Richard Kimble, “an innocent victim of blind justice,” falsely convicted for the murder of his wife, escapes en route to his execution when a train wreck frees him to search for the elusive one-armed man who committed the crime, while pursued by Lt. Philip Gerard, the police lieutenant obsessed with his capture. The Hitchcockian overtones are unmistakable, as an innocent man caught in the middle chases the real perpetrator while hunted by the police. This modern reworking of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables—even the name Gerard evokes that of Inspector Javert—continues to enthrall because of its gritty, noir-like cinematography, first-rate scripts, haunting score, and affecting performances. Starring David Janssen in a sympathetic, understated performance as Kimble, and Barry Morse in an impressive portrayal as the relentless Gerard, The Fugitive continues to be rated one of the most popular drama series in television history. It now makes its DVD debut in a set featuring the first fifteen episodes of Season One.
The complete first season of the brilliant original TV series that inspired two Hollywood blockbusters, The Fugitive stars David Janssen as Dr Richard Kimble, a doctor unjustly accused of murdering his wife. When his train crashes while escorting him to Death Row, Kimble breaks free from his custodian Lt Gerard (Barry Morse) and escapes. Fleeing from town to town, regularly switching identities, toiling at countless jobs and constantly under threat of his real identity being found out, Kimble soon becomes obsessed with catching the real killer - a one-armed man he saw leaving the scene of the crime. His obsession is matched only by Lt Gerard's - who blames himself for Kimble's escape and who will stop at nothing to get him back.
