World famous British actor, (Sir) John Mills, needed something to keep him busy while his daughter, Haley (The Parent Trap), did her movies for Walt Disney. CBS signed him to star in Dundee & The Culhane, created especially for Mills' talents. His co-star was Sean Garrison, playing The Culhane. I still don't know what a Culhane is. Anyway, this was my second show as a Costumer after my stint on The Fugitive TV series. We shot the first few segments in Arizona, then came back to Hollywood to finish up the 13 initial (and only) segments. The show was an early cancellation that year--1967. Take a look.
