It's obvious that the all exterior shots of the bank were shot all at once. At 28:30, after placing Rollins money in the vault, there is an exterior shot panning left. There are two extras on the far left, an elderly woman wearing a purple outfit and scarf and a woman in white. The woman in purple misses her cue to begin walking and seems to be looking towards the cameras. The woman in white begins walking and turns back to alert the woman in purple to begin walking. The purple woman can be seen a little earlier, about 22:30, walking with a package. She is also seen outside the bank when Barney and Paul are arrested and escorted into the truck. There is also a green sports car that stops while Willy closes the truck door. There is plenty of room for the car to pass. The same green car appears in the same shots with the purple woman. By observing the extras you can plainly see many reused in different shots. Must not be much to do in that town. See more »

Jack and Luis gets what's comin' to 'em.
8 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Jack Cole (Dan O'Herlihy) is the lone surviving member of a gang who robbed the Aztec treasure from a small, poor democracy. The country needs this treasure and is facing bankruptcy without it. Fortunately, they've captured Cole. Unfortunately, the commandant of the prison is Colonel Luis Cordoza (Mark Lenard)--and he is a thoroughly evil man. Cordoza is pumping Cole to find out about the whereabouts of the treasure--but for himself and not his country. So, it's up to the IM Force to use Cole to find the treasure and expose Cordoza for the treasonous dog that he really is.

The inside man in this episode is Jim Phelps (Peter Graves). He approaches Cordoza with a plan. He'll become a prisoner and engineer an escape along with Cole--and Cordoza can follow them to the treasure. The problem with the plan is that both Cordoza and Cole are thoroughly despicable and each will eventually try to kill the others so that they can get the treasure for themselves. Can Jim and the rest of the team manage to come out of this alive? "Trek" is a very solid episode. I saw no plot inconsistencies nor major holes. And, as Peter Graves' first episode (the second aired but the fist filmed), it's a darn good start.
