Special agents West and Gordon are sent to the mortuary to identify the body of their arch enemy, Dr. Miguelito Loveless. A mourner at the morgue takes a key from the wrist of the corpse and West traces it back to a safe deposit box containing instructions to contact an attorney. When West makes contact, he also meets Dr. Leibknicht, the look-alike relative of Loveless. Written by
When Loveless' uncle is introduced to West, his name is given as "Doctor Liebknicht". Translated literally from German, this is "love-not" (although in German, "nicht" is spelled without the 'k'), which means the same as Loveless. See more »
Doctor Liebknicht purports to be from Zurich, but his accent is inconsistent. Among the most notable slips is that he sometimes pronounces West's name as it is in English and sometimes as it would be in German ("vest"). See more »
*Spoiler/plot- TNO Dr. Loveless Died, 1967, The agents uncover a twisted plot devised by their old nemesis, Dr. Loveless to fake his own death with a European relative, uncle Dr. Leibknicht.
*Special Stars- Robert Conrad, Ross Martin, Michael Dunn, Susan Oliver, Anthony Caruso
*Theme- The genius of Dr. Loveless and his legacy has to be saved by the Secret Service.
*Trivia/location/goofs- Original air date: 9-29-67. Haynes City CA frontier town plot location. Dr. Leibknicht means "love-not". Leather medical restrains during the operating room scene holding West split on camera BEFORE the knife is applied to cut them. In the Dr. Loveless coffin funeral scene, the gold key moved it position from wrist to waist.
*Emotion- Essentially a "good guy VS bad guys" episode but made very fun & interesting based on the acting talents & role of Dr. Loveless. Mr. Caruso's outlaw character is sadly forgettable. But, Mr. Martin's many undercover characters(French Doctor and etc.) make this episode entertaining and worth a fun look also. The plot device of using a talking parrot and agent West not being more suspicious after seeing 'The Uncle' is hugely unbelievable for the viewer and goes against the efficient secret agent's instincts of the super hero lead role in this carefully designed series.
