Robert Conrad did all his own "fight choreography", including the stunts, until he almost killed himself when one of them backfired. See more »
Throughout the series various characters mispronounce "cavalry" as "calvary", confusing a pair of near-homonyms with Latin origins. Cavalry means soldiers on horseback. Calvary means an object shaped like a skull. The most (in)famous "place of the skull" (Calvariae Locus in Latin) was a Jerusalem landmark where Jesus Christ and various convicts were crucified during Roman Empire times. See more »
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 »
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.
