  • Sheriff Of Cochise

    Nothing on TV worth watching last night. Turned on the computer and zeroed in on YouTube.
    Stumbled upon a television program from 1957 called "Sheriff Of Cochise"
    The Sherff Dept. Staff drove a 1956 Chrysler Saratoga wagon and the marked police car was a 1956 Studebaker. The bad guys also drove a 1956 Studebaker sedan and a Studebaker pickup truck!

    Yeah the Cool kick A$$ Sheriff with the Shotgun in clips on the Left Front Door Panel of his Chrysler!

    The Bad guys always drive "inconspicuous"? Cars like Studebakers??? Hmm, depends on the year I guess.

    A Show like Highway Patrol with Broderick Crawford in his '55 Buick Century 2 Door Sedan, another neat '50's TV Show.

      Sheriff was played by...John Bromfield. Not sure why I remember that bit of trivia as haven't seen the show since I was a preteenager. Cochise county is in Arizona.

        I was told once by an SDC member from that area that the Studebakers used as Sheriff cars really were Cochise County Sheriff cars.

            Highway Patrol is usually on every morning at 4 or 5 A.M. on "THIS" Network. http://thistv.com/schedule/sched/2015-11-30
            Dan Mathews didn't seem to have a preference, as later shows had him in Plymouths, Dodges, Fords and Buicks. I don't however recall any Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles or Studebakers.

              Funny thing the YouTube posting for the video doesn't list a title.
              Will keep trying to see if I can track it down.

                John Bromfield was born in South Bend. I wonder if that could explain the "product placement"?

                            Wow did this bring back some memories. I do remember now watching this in Phoenix as a kid of 5 years old. It looks like Cochise county but I am sure it was filmed in California on some desert back lots. I remember seeing the show one time which a deputy was chasing a bad guy in a 56 Studebaker but the car rolled in the chase. We had a 56 Snowcap white/Gold sedan at the time that dad bought new.

                            Listening to the background music and the ricochet sound effects; what drama. Also with all the shots fired no one ever had to reload or run out of ammo.

                              Actually, a lot of the filming was done in and around Bisbee, AZ.
