Mystery TV Themes: JUDD, FOR THE DEFENSE

Spotlighting the great themes from mystery/crime TV shows ...

JUDD, FOR THE DEFENSE
This legal drama, which aired on ABC 1967-1969, starred Carl Betz as Clinton Judd, a flamboyant attorney based in Houston who took on controversial cases across the country, defending everyone from 1960s flower children to corporate tycoons.

The jaunty theme was written by Alexander Courage, who began as an orchestrator/arranger at MGM studios, working on such films as Show Boat, The Band Wagon, and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. He frequently served as orchestrator for Andre Previn, John Williams, and Jerry Goldsmith. His TV credits include the original Star Trek, Lost in Space, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Daniel Boone, and The Waltons.
