Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Century Turns is the syndication title of the 2-hour pilot for the Hec Ramsey television series. Richard Boone stars as Ramsey, an old-fashioned western lawman coming to grips with the "modern technology" of the 20th century. Ramsey teams up with college-educated criminologist Oliver Stamp (Rick Lenz) to solve a tricky mystery. Before the film's 97 minutes are up, both veteran and newcomer learn a lot from each other-though it's Ramsey who has the least to learn. Produced by Jack Webb, The Century Turns was originally telecast October 8, 1972; the Hec Ramsey series was shown in rotation with Columbo, McCloud and McMillan and Wife until August 25, 1974.
