A Rede americana ABC teve muitos anos atrás uma programa chamado “MISTERY MOVIE” (no Brasil OS DETETIVES) que alternava historias policiais com o casal McMillan, o Tenente Columbo(Peter Falk) e o Sargento McCloud(Dennis Weaver).

O casal McMillan era vivido por Rock Hudson, como Stewart McMillan, um ex-mariner e advogado apontado como Comissário de Polícia de São Francisco e sua esposa Sally McMillan (Susan St.James). Juntos viviam aventuras policiais meio cômicas, meio sérias, quase ingênuas e com violência meio estilizada já que era um programa familiar.

Com os protagonistas havia o Sargento Charlie Enright(John Schuck) e a empregada Mildred(Nancy Walker), constantemente enrolados nas tramas.

O seriado teve seis temporadas (1971 a 1977) e 40 episódios.

Na última temporada, Susan Saint James não renovou seu contrato e a personagem Sally foi dada como morta em um acidente de avião, tornando o Comissário viúvo.

Era uma excelente série de TV.

 

The American Network ABC had many years ago a program called “MISTERY MOVIE” (in Brazil THE DETECTIVES) that alternated police histories with McMillan & Wife, Lieutenant Columbo (Peter Falk) and McCloud (Dennis Weaver).

The McMillan couple were Rock Hudson, as Stewart McMillan, a former mariner and lawyer appointed as San Francisco Police Commissioner and his wife Sally McMillan (Susan St. James). Together they lived half-hearted, almost naive police adventures with half-stylized violence since it was a family program.

With the protagonists there was Sergeant Charlie Enright (John Schuck) and maid Mildred (Nancy Walker), constantly wrapped in the plots.

The series had six seasons (1971 to 1977) and 40 episodes.

Last season, Susan Saint James did not renew her contract and the character Sally was pronounced dead in a plane crash, making the Commissioner a widower.

It was an excellent TV series.
