Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Day New York Turned Blue stars Dennis Weaver as Sam McCloud, a Western marshal "at large" in New York City. The title is drawn from two plot elements: the fact that Manhattan is blanketed by a snowstorm, and the man-hating activities of a hooker (portrayed by Bernadette Peters) who has a habit of painting her clients blue! Somehow all this ties in with a labor union accountant (Gig Young) who is in danger of being killed by the Mafia. A bureaucrat (William Daniels), anxious to conduct an audit on the accountant's union, seems a little too eager to spring the targeted man from protective custody. This two-hour McCloud episode was first broadcast February 22, 1976.
