Cannons are hefty, difficult to maneuver, and explosive. So is Frank Cannon. He's a gruff ex-cop who may be losing his hair but not his hunger for gourmet cuisine--and justice. As a private detective he doesn't come cheap, but he certainly provides his clients with their money's worth, making wrongs right and eating criminals for breakfast. Playing the overweight gumshoe is William Conrad, one TV's most unconventional stars, who later went on to headline one-half of JAKE AND THE FATMAN (you can guess in which role). This collection presents the second volume of the 1970s series' debut season, bursting with daredevil car chases and dialogue so sharp it could cut through a T-bone steak.
The weekly adventures of Frank Cannon, an overweight, balding ex-cop with a deep voice and expensive tastes in culinary pleasures, who becomes a high-priced private investigator. Since Cannon's girth didn't allow for many fist-fights and gun battles (although there were many), the series substituted car chases and high production values in their place.
