1969 Ironsides TV show

Post by Don Pseuym on March 11th 2017, 10:33 am

Ironsides was arguably the top TV crime drama in 68-69 ,. A smart scripted TV  show too
The opening intro of it was a slow camera shot panning most of the old S F neighborhoods
I would bet Z tuned in to see that part of the show if not more ...if you can find it on still it is worth a look to see 68-69 SF  in color ,I wonder where the camera was placed

There was a feb 27,69 episode involving a cab driver shooting

Good find!! I'm going to see if I can find any episodes, or maybe some seasons on DVD.

The plot ...I read was a  cop Sgt. moonlighting as a cab driver in San Francisco ..of course , shoots/kills  a customer
I wonder how much he looked like P Stine?
Yeah the cross-hair circle , ironsides was sniped on the 1st show
Police used to use a cab as a undercover car
perhaps zodiac knew it and was trying to shoot a uncover cop ,but got Stine

This is another reason to wonder if Z was in the film industry - an actor, writer, director, producer, behind-the-scenes guy... or whatever. In the 8 or 9 years that the show was around, they had 45 people who had directed at least one episode, and they had probably around 100 people who got a credit as a writer. The amount of people who got an acting credit on the show is way up there, maybe even over 1,000. That is a lot of people to research. I could see Zodiac being a film maker, thinking he is writing the ultimate real life movie and outsmarting everyone.


Here is the cast & crew from the show:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061266/fullcredits?ref_=tt_cl_sm#cast

Zodiac, are you on that list???



Raymond Burr aka "Ironside" does look a little like the Stine sketch...


He's heavyset, has a bit of a round face and the widow's peak.

Ironside (1967-1975) TV series on IMDb:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061266/?ref_=nm_knf_t2


Elizabeth Baur, who played Officer Fran Belding, was also in the 1968 film "The Boston Strangler."


In 1993, there was a TV movie called "the Return of Ironside."

Here is something interesting... there was a Ralph Ferrin who was an assistant director on 1 episodes on the show, in 1968.

He was born in 1924 and died in 2003.

Here are some people listed in the cast & crew that I plan to research:

Ron Hayes (actor) 2/26/1929 - 10/1/2004. Was 6'2" (maybe too tall). Birth name Ronald G. Hayes. Ron attended Stanford University from 1949-1952 and graduated with a degree in foreign relations. After graduating from Stanford, Ron spent a year and a half as a Marine Lt. in Korea during the war. After the Korean War, Ron settled in the San Jose, CA area and worked for KSJO radio. In 1957 he moved with his wife, Joan, and three children, Vanessa, Peter, and Heidi, to Hollywood to begin an acting career. Ron was a lifelong environmental activist and was one of the principal founders of Earth Day, helping launch the first Earth Day celebration in 1970. Was not living in the Bay Area in the late 60's.


Robert "Bob" Hastings 4/18/1925 - 6/30/2014.


Robert Hamner 7/6/1928 - 4/25/1996.


Richard H. Landau 2/21/1914 - 9/18/1993.

AND the show was primarily filmed in San Francisco, although some parts were filmed at Universal Studios in Hollywood. It is very possible that this show could have had a slight influence on Zodiac and, like I said before, maybe he even worked on the show.

maybe he was a extra in a scene ,or always tried to get on it . anyone could do that . may have wanted an extra stocky person to compliment Raymond Burr and make him look normal
but this was the top rated show, NBC?
had the thursday nite time slot 7:30 -8:30 here

Awesome! Thanks for the tip... gonna see if I can check it out for free, but we have a lot of restrictions on the computers here at work so I'm guessing it won't work.

Some one should grab that slow pan of 1968 ? San Francisco ,it lasts 30 sec.? and use it on their zodiac site

also a Grateful Dead original band member released a trove of photos from the 60's on of SF and the band goolge or Yahoo it the chron has it but you need a subscription to view
