The Fugitive, a QM Production, starring David Janssen as Dr. Richard Kimble, an innocent victim of blind justice, falsely convicted for the murder of his wife, reprieved by fate when a train wreck freed him en route to the death house; freed him to hide in lonely desperation, to change his identity, to toil at many jobs; freed him to search for a one-armed man he saw leave the scene of the crime; freed him to run before the relentless pursuit of the police lieutenant obsessed with his capture.
The final episode of the series aired on a different date in Canada (September 5 as opposed to Aug. 29 in the US). For Canadian prints of the final episode, the ending narration was changed to mention September 5. Some VHS releases of "The Judgement" released in the US retain the Canadian narration. See more
