Trivia

Captain Crane (played by David Hedison) calls Mr. Mr. Van Drutan at the Geophysical Institute for permission to shut down the drilling rig being run by Mr. Omir (James Darren). Van Drutan is played by Cec Linder who played Felix Leiter in the James Bond movie "Goldfinger." David Hedison later played Felix Leiter in "Live and Let Die" and "Licence to Kill." Hedison and Linder were not in the same shot, though they did share the same scene. And this match-up occurred years before Hedison was ever cast as Leiter. See more »

The Mechanical Man
22 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm one person who likes James Darren enough to get the second half of the second season of this series just to get his episode. James Darren is one of my favorite actors. He underplays his role as Peter Omir beautifully. Also from a female chauvinistic viewpoint if I were going to build an android it would probably look like James Darren who is as good looking now as he was in the 60s. David Hedison, who takes the prominent role in this episode due to Richard Basehart's illness, does well with his lead role. It's also nice to see Gidget's father (Author O'Connell) do battle with Gidget's original boyfriend (James Darren played Moondoggie) in this episode. Irwin Allen should have cast James Darren in some of his movies.
