CADE'S COUNTY - TV Classics - Glenn Ford


Cade's County starred well-known Hollywood actor Glenn Ford as Sam Cade, the sheriff of the fictional Madrid County, a vast and sparsely populated desert area that was apparently located well inland in the American Southwest.

Cade's character was complex and interesting. He came from a socially prominent and well-to-do family in the county, had served in the U.S. Navy as a fighter pilot — there was one reference to the Korean War — and had been an FBI agent, after which he returned to Madrid County to become sheriff. There were no references to a wife or close family in the series.

His chief deputy was J. J. Jackson, portrayed by the character actor Edgar Buchanan. While Cade had traveled the world, and had modern law enforcement training, Jackson had apparently spent most of his life and career in Madrid County.

Together they fought to maintain law and order against violent miners, cattle thieves and other lawbreakers who, for the most part, would have seemed at home in Westerns set in any era. Cade usually drove a jeep, as many of the roads in his jurisdiction were apparently little more than tracks across the sand. Several of the characters, including some of Cade's deputies, were native Americans. Another deputy was played by Ford's son, Pete.

After summer hiatus, Cade's County was replaced in the 1972–1973 fall TV season by a new series titled M*A*S*H. The quality of this set is very good except for a couple of episodes. The full-length movie SLAY RIDE is one of these episodes with a rating of 8,5 to 9.
