Hans Conreid as Wrongway Feldman
11 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

"Wrongway Feldman" introduced Hans Conreid in the title role, the series' very first guest star, in only the fifth episode. Gilligan discovers a biplane among the jungle foliage, the 'Spirit of the Bronx,' which everyone recognizes as Wrongway Feldman's plane, so named for his penchant for never ending up at his intended destination. According to Mr. Howell, he took off from Chicago and landed in New Orleans; unfortunately, he was supposed to be in Minneapolis! Even more shocking is to see Feldman alive and well, and eager to know what's happened in the 33 years since he'd gone missing. The castaways help ready the old plane for takeoff, but a curious series of mishaps demonstrate that someone doesn't want the plane to leave the island. It's not hard to guess the culprit, and by the end Wrongway makes it to the sky, with Gilligan telling the Skipper that Feldman is the bravest man he's ever known: "next to you." Moments like that explain why the series continues to grow in popularity with each new generation, for despite his awesome ineptitude Gilligan is all heart, and Bob Denver's sincerity shines through.
