'The Official Fan's Guide to The Fugitive': History, Episode Synopses, Interviews and Star List From One of the Classic Television Shows of All Time

SAN DIEGO, July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- "The name: Dr. Richard Kimble. The destination: Death Row, State Prison. The Irony: Richard Kimble is innocent. Proved guilty, what Richard Kimble could not prove was that moments before discovering his murdered wife's body, he saw a one-armed man running from the vicinity of his home. Richard Kimble ponders his fate as he looks at the world for the last time, and sees only darkness. But in that darkness, fate moves its huge hand..."

So began one of the most enduring and beloved television dramas of the 1960s starring David Janssen. The plot device of Kimble, on the run and pursuing his wife's killer, was adventurous, intriguing, and proved to be an often-imitated formula for future dramas. The Official Fan's Guide to The Fugitive (published by iUniverse) by sportscaster/actor Mel Proctor, outlines all the history and behind-the-scenes details of one of the classic television shows of all time. From its debut on ABC in 1963 until its record-audience finale Aug. 29, 1967, 120 episode synopses are documented and detailed. The Official Fan's Guide to The Fugitive includes interviews with many of the actors and producers who worked on the show, and includes the original treatment by Roy Huggins. Proctor lists every actor who appeared on the show, including guest stars Ed Asner, Robert Duvall, Suzanne Pleshette, Angie Dickinson, Jack Lord, Kurt Russell and many more. The fan guide also lists all of the aliases used by Dr. Kimble. Named by TV Guide in 1993 as the best television drama from the 1960s, the series has had a second life and earned new audiences in syndication (A&E 1984-94), and on DVD sets, and inspired another series and the movie "The Fugitive," (1993) starring Tommy Lee Jones and Harrison Ford. Anyone who loves the series will find Proctor's guide a must-read -- a way to relive the magic that made The Fugitive one of the most enduring dramas of all time.
