Storyline

19th-century government agent and master of disguise Jeff Cable operates out of a secret room in a San Francisco casino owned by his best pal Cash Conover. Conover is sort of a dandy, and would rather avoid trouble at all costs, but Cable's persuasiveness coupled with Cash's sense of duty and a weakness for the fairer sex shared by both men usually leads them into dangerous missions.

Barbary Coast
12 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the film only once. I missed the first part of it. I remember seeing this burly, scruffy, rough looking guy come into a pub and walk into a back room. As the man started to peal off various items, I noticed his eyes. After a few moments, I realized that it was, William Shatner. WOW! I loved it. For the rest of the movie, I couldn't wait to see what sort of disguise he would appear as. The China man in the end was choice.

I have always thought that it must be an actors dream-come-true to be able to play all of those wild and fascinating characters all in one movie.

I only wish that I could see it again, however, if I understood Mr. Shatner during an interview on Regis, there were no video version made for distribution. I respect that, but will never forget that movie.
