The Paper Chase
was a drama that ran from 1978 to 1986. From what
we have been told, this series chronicled the college
educational career of a hand full of law students from
inception to graduation. It was a spin-off from a
1973 movie by the same name. Evidently the
students had some tough professors to deal with.
John Houseman, who starred in the original movie, also
starred in the TV show.
