McMillan & Wife

Monday, December 02, 2019

McMillan & Wife, 1971-77, 3D of the major shows that rotated in the NBC Mystery Movie (the other 2 were Columbo & McCloud. NBC would throw a 4th in to try them out). Rock Hudson starred as San Francisco Police Commissioner Stuart McMillan. Susan St. James as his wife, Sally, for 6 years.She was ‘killed’ off screen (plane crash) after the 6th season, when NBC & St James couldn’t agree on her contract - then the show was called just McMillan. I liked this show, too, but did not remember that ‘Sally’ was pregnant twice in the series. In the first season, but no baby was ever mentioned in the second season. Then she was pregnant in the 4th season, had a baby boy in last episode of that season - but the baby was never seen after that. . Hmm, what happened to the babies? Anyway, episodes frequently showed ’Mac’ & Sally at a charity event or la-de-dah parties, after which he would go out to solve the crisis Du jour.

I Left My Heart in San Francisco , 1962, Tony Bennett’s signature song - he’s sung it all over the world

The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gay
The glory that was Rome is just another day
I've been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan
I'm going home to my city by the bay

left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill it calls to me
To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars
The morning fog may chill the air, I don't care

My love waits there in San Francisco
Above the blue and windy sea
When I come home to you, San Francisco
Your golden sun will shine for me
