Airing on ABC in August 1975, this brief drama series was set in the small, peaceful resort town of Eagle Lake, where Sheriff Sam Adams (Andy Griffith) had his quiet life disrupted by a larcenous eagle stealing picnickers’ food, a draft dodger returning from Canada to visit his dying grandfather, and an escaped convict – all in one day.
The discovery of a cache of antique gold coins also caused disruption in the small town as a flock of mobsters invaded the area to get their hands on them.
The music was by Jerry Goldsmith.
