No disability will stop his war on crime. Confined to a wheelchair, the result of a would-be assassin's bullet, former Chief of Detectives Robert T. Ironside has become the head of his own special police unit. Fighting crime with intelligence and action, television's most unique detective is aided by a crack team of investigators who contribute professional skill and personal concern in the various cases to which he is assigned.
Raymond Burr, fresh from 9 years as TV's most famous lawyer, Perry Mason shook the typecasting from his previous role and made Ironside an instant hit with audiences, running an incredible 8 years. Hard-hitting storyline dealing with socially important topics are merged with high production' values, a superb supporting cast and brilliant score by the legendary Quincy Jones.
