Win the Hawkins TV movie collection starring James Stewart


Before ‘Matlock’ there was ‘Hawkins,’ starring James Stewart. CliqueClack is giving away one copy of the complete TV movie collection on DVD to a lucky reader!


**This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering, and check back for more offers!

More than ten years before Andy Griffith became everyone’s favorite lawyer with a nose for snooping and sleuthing, James Stewart returned to the small screen a year after the short-lived The Jimmy Stewart Show as the crime solving Billy Jim Hawkins in a series of TV movies entitled Hawkins. The movies alternated throughout the 1973-1974 season with a series of Shaft TV movies. Hawkins solved crimes with his cousin RJ (Strother Martin), and the movies featured a host of guest stars including a very young Bonnie Bedelia, Cameron Mitchell, Julie Harris, William Windom, Lew Ayres, James Best, and Pernell Roberts. Now, the Warner Archive Collection is making all eight TV movies available in a 4-disk DVD set — available exclusively through the Warner Archives — and one lucky CliqueClack reader can win their very own copy!  All you have to do is leave a comment below (one per person, please) between 9:00 AM, Saturday, November 17 and 11:59 PM, Friday, November 23. We will pick a comment at random, and the winner will receive their DVD directly from the fine folks at the Warner Archives (US addresses only). So tell us why you’d like to win Hawkins on DVD. Good luck!

  8. I don’t know much about this but I know Jimmy Stewart is an excellent actor.

  9. I remember this series and always wanted to see it again. Jimmy Stewart and Strother Martin made a great team as the down home versions of Perry Mason and Paul Drake.

  10. I remember this short-lived series. It was a time in tv history when aging Hollywood stars, like Jimmy and Henry Fonda and Glenn Ford tried their hand at episodic tv…and they mostly all failed. Good efforts by good actors…but the kids at home preferred young “talent” like the Brady Bunch and Sonny and Cher…sigh…

  11. I love shows like “Matlock” and “Murder She Wrote,” and I’m a fan of Jimmy Stewart. I hope I win this set of DVD’s so that I can enjoy these 8 movies that I missed when they originally aired.
