More period-piece adventure starring Wild Wild West's, Robert Conrad.
This one is to be recommended to fans of Robert Conrad only. It offers a slim slice of the fun we had watching the attractive star step back in time in "The Wild Wild West," but this murder mystery is an otherwise familiar and by-the-book story. Conrad, famous for peeling off his shirt and doing his own fighting stunts as James West, hits the same marks in his first scene, electing to box a fighter being touted as an investment prospect. The sparring is for real, and concludes with Conrad teeing up his chin at the surprising news of his friend's death, then crashing to the canvas when his opponent just about takes his head off with a knockout punch. He's no Jackie Chan--or Laurence Olivier for that matter--but Conrad always gets an "E" for effort.
