Cannon

Overweight private detective Frank Cannon(William Conrad) had resigned from the LAPD. He charges high fees to his well-to-do clients so that he can work for his poorer clients at little or no charge. He also uses it to indulge his high-priced lifestyle, which includes maintenance on his Lincoln Continental Mark IV, which is frequently wrecked.
