Trivia

Robert Conrad (5'8") wore 3" heels as Jim West and the CBS casting office had orders not to hire any women over 5'6" for the show. See more »

Goofs

The United States Secret Service is frequently employed as bodyguards for President Grant. But this was not the case in the 19th century, when the Service was a Treasury operation used to catch counterfeiters. The duty of being presidential bodyguards was assigned to the Secret Service in 1901 after President William McKinley's murder. McKinley's immediate successor Theodore Roosevelt was the first chief executive to benefit from this change. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening credits as originally designed for the pilot (and included on the season 1 DVD) show the animated cowboy knocking down the woman trying to stab him. In the first season as aired, the cowboy kisses the woman, who dreamily turns away instead of trying to stab him. Later episodes reinstated the cowboy knocking the woman down. See more »

User Reviews

A classic show
3 July 2001 | by (la) – See all my reviews

I remember watching the reruns when I was a kid. Truly, a great show. Not just because of the sci-fi/western premise, but because Conrad and Martin were so great on the show. Of all the spy shows and movies to come out of the 60s, Conrad (James West) had to be the coolest. The great music and opening sequence are legendary. Whereas this is one of the greatest cast westerns of the 60s, its 1999 movie remake is probably one of the worst cast films of the 90s. I hope they release these episodes on DVD someday.
