Style Over Substance William Welch Western
7 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Tony and Doug appear in the age of Billy The Kid, however, at the start of act one it seems Doug (Robert Colbert) has murdered Billy The Kid and history has been changed by the time travellers...or has it?

Westerns are not my favourite genre but even I admit to being blown away by the William Welch (writer) quirks, the acting of Robert Walker Jr (Billy), the sets (I once heard they used the MGM backlot for this one episode), and the closing frames that rank as the most amusing moments of ANY Irwin Allen series.

Granted, not a lot happens in the hour, but this is style over substance stuff, a quirk of William Welch.

Welch gives Doug some great lines to Billy, Doug lets out this confusing (to Billy) stuff about the travellers not being able to kill Billy. This talk might not amount to much in the story but it creates a mysterious edge in the hour that the viewer long remembers. I remember Billy The Kid but I don't remember any Clint Eastwood/John Wayne westerns I see...think about that.

Guest star John Crawford does not get any good lines but his time would come in The Time Tunnel episode Raiders From Outer Space, Crawford is good in that one. Sadly, Whit Bissell is also pushed into the background, in terms of good lines.

Look out for Patrick Culliton (tall 20something guy who looks like a football player), he was a bit part seaman in Voyage to the Bottom of the fact he did Voyage's The Mummy around the time of this episode.

If you wish to see other style over substance westerns, I would watch movies Garden Of Evil (1954) and The Devil And Miss Sarah (1971).

If you thought this episode was wild, wait until you see what next week's show is, Victor Jory steals the hour as a crazy pirate! All sorts of things are going on in the command centre as well...someone else is sent back in time and the tunnel moves figures from pirate history all over the place. A knockout! Another mind-blower!
