Which Christine Cagney solved this crime?

The role of Christine Cagney has been passed between a handful of incredible actresses. Loretta Swit originated the role in the film that acted as a pilot, solidifying the dynamic duo in the public eye and sparking the start of an iconic series. After Swit couldn't get out of her contract for the popular show M*A*S*H, Meg Foster stepped in to take over the role, bringing fresh edge and grit to the part. 

While she certainly could have continued as the fearless detective, pressure from the executives at CBS resulted in the role going to Sharon Gless. Producers wanted Gless to make the role more feminine, more aristocrat-meets-the-streets, and possibly add a snobby air to her character. Instead, Gless kept the role headstrong and passionate, and made the character into an icon for feminists across the country. 

Now, because Swit only has the single movie under her belt, we're going to save her trivia for another day. In the meantime, we want to know if you can spot which Cagney – Foster or Gless – was on the casein these episodes. Good luck!

number 9 is incorrect - it was Victor and Mary Beth who were trapped in the elevator, not Victor and Chris
