Opening titles to Ironside starring Raymond Burr. Theme by Quincy Jones.
Great show. I’ll never forget when Mad Magazine published a parody of Cannon, Ironside, and Longstreet. It was titled Canyon, Iron Butt, and Long Shot.
quincy jones was on colbert and said this was the first use of a synthesizer. pretty neat.
@Keon2006 HGWT5763. 01/11/07/2010 A.D. VERY LIKELY NOT.,I DOUBT THAT EVEN ANDY SIPOWICZ OR VIC MACKEY,NOT TO MENTION TONY BARETTA, WOULD DARE TO GET HIM RILED-AND HE WAS A COP WHO PLAYED BY THE BOOK,HE WAS NOT A VIGILANTE BY ANY MEANS-NEITHER WAS JOEFRIDAY.
HGWT5763. 01/11/07/2010 A.D. IRONSIDE WAS NEVER ONE IN GIVE IN TO SELF-PITY,HE NEVER DID THAT-NOR DID HE EVER ASK FOR ANY SYMPATHY,AND HE WOULD PROBABLY KNOCK YOU DOWN ON YOUR ASS IF YOU EVEN TRIED TO.HE JUST OVERCAME HIS PERMANENT HANDICAP AND WENT STRAIGHT BACK TO WORK-JUST LIKE THAT!
@bashir1980 HGWT5763. 01/77/07/2010 A.D. ALTHOUGH THIS WAS JUST A FICTIONAL SERIES,AS WELL AS A GROUNDBREAKING ONE,SOMETHING SUCH AS THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO ANY POLICE OFFICER,MALE OR FEMALE,IN REAL LIFE.THE SHOW DID PROVE SOMETHING IMPORTANT-NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU,YOU ARE STILL THE SAME PERSON.
@bijeto no shit sherlock
Lol the music is like Invader Zim.
this and the columbo intro scared the living little crap outta me…still does, creepy
Music reminds me of the “Militant Black Guy” segment from Balls of Steel. In fact they might have plain old nicked it.
for some reason this version just scared me
He’s got a very stable shooting platform. Loved the series.
Yes it was,
The toughest guy in a wheelchair. No room for argument.
Ironside used to scare the sh#t out of me.
I saw the sheet music years ago – written by Oliver Nelson. I don’t know who recorded it for the show – maybe Quincy – don’t know why they wouldn’t have used Oliver’s orchestra but he wrote it.
Bruce Lee cameo episodes on Ironside and several on Longstreet… Introducing Jeet Kun Do to the world (The Way of the Intercepting Fist)!
Don’t forget Here Come the Brides and Marlow!
Great shows…! Imagine such an opportunity for that…
I remember being like 3 or 4 years old and someone was watching this show and that music at the beginning used to scare the shit out of me, I guess maybe that’s why later in life I really like the show and love that you can see old episodes of this and other awsome shows on the internet today and let’s not forget that Raymond Burr was a great actor just another bonus of being able to see this show again…..
i remember this, i liked the opening, looking through the rifle scope, but i always wanted the sniper to shoot the negro instead of Ironside…lol
lol, jeez its been years but when I hear this I remember my sister running to hide in the closet
NEVER TOO MUCH!
F U C K I N G A W E S O M E
LOL. We ALL did!
Why did i laugh my head off at this?
This is the bit in the kill bill films i hate the most. the sound just goes through me
my goodness what was going on in america with all those police and detective shows in the 60s and 70s way too much police dramas.
