Trivia:
Ross Martin read a script when it was first given to him, then did a pen-and ink drawing of the character he was going to play, down to the last detail--glasses, mustache, clothes, posture, shoes, etc. Then he brought the sketch to make-up man Don Schoenfeld, and together they molded his face until it looked like the drawing.See more »
Goofs:
Anachronisms: 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 »

Have Gun, Will Travel Meets the Avengers, 2 October 2003
Author: Brian Washington (Sargebri@att.net) from Los Angeles, California

In 1965 someone had the bright idea to mix the two most popular genres at that time, spy shows and westerns, and came up with this classic series. The western elements were obviously the horses, Indians and a strong hero and the espionage elements were the gadgets and megalomaniacal villains. Robert Conrad was excellent as Jim West and Ross Martin was just as great as the master of disguise Artemis Gordon. This chemistry between the two leads helped to make this show a classic. However, Michael Dunn pretty much stole the show as Miguelito Loveless, or as Artie would often call him, "The Little Wizard". This show will always be one of the wildest things about the decade of the 60's.
