Manhunter, The (CBS 1974-1975, Ken Howard, Robert Hogan)

The Manhunter CBS 1974-1975 with Ken Howard

Set in the 1930’s crime drama The Manhunter focused on one time marine Dave Barrett who decided to turn bounty after his fiancee was killed during a bank robbery.

Barrett travelled the country when the Great Depression was in full swing and every crook fancied himself as the next John Dillinger or Clyde Barrow.

Barrett was occasionally helped out by Sheriff Paul Tate and other characters included Barrett’s family James and Mary Barrett.

The series was a Quinn Martin production but failed to match up to some of his better known efforts such as The Streets of San Francisco, Cannon and The Fugitive.
