Did You Know?


Actress Sharon Farrell, who plays Cloris, would herself suffer from amnesia a few years later after experiencing a stroke while giving birth to her son. By Sharon's own account, it took three years to recover and she still suffers from some memory loss. See more »


A sign on the stagecoach in the opening scene reads "U.S. Dept Of Health" There was never a Department of Health; the Department of Health, Education and Welfare was organized in 1953 under President Eisenhower; it became the Department of Health and Human Services when Education became its own department in 1979. The cabinet of President Ulysses Grant consisted of eight officials: the Vice President (Schuyler Coulfax), the Attorney General (George Williams), Postmaster General (John Creswell) and the Secretaries of State (Hamilton Fish), War (William W. Belknap), the Treasury (George Boutwell), the Navy (George Robeson) and the Interior (Columbus Delano). See more »


Artemus Gordon: Crotty, this epidemic has already reached monumental proportions. Thousands more are going to die. Don't you care how many people you kill?
Furman Crotty: They're inferior. They're the great unwashed. Plymouth Rock should have landed on the pilgrims.

Thanks for the Memories
11 September 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Terrific episode that leaves the camp that plagued many of the season three episodes behind. West is dispatched to help deliver a supply of smallpox vaccine to stop a deadly outbreak. Along the way the wagon he's in is ambushed and West takes a bullet on the side of the head that gives him amnesia.

The vaccine was stolen by the gang of an imprisoned Kansas City mobster (Ed Asner, very much like his "El Dorado" character) who offers to return the vaccine in exchange for his freedom and a pardon. More supplies of the vaccine are at least six days away, so the government makes a deal and asks Gordon to see it through. Gordon does so while looking for West.

Lots of action and a pretty decent story in this. Conrad is good as a amnesiac West, who may not have his memory, but still has his reflexes and his touch with the ladies. The only disappointing thing about this episode is how easily his memory comes back--when Artie is in jeopardy. But as a whole, a very enjoyable episode.
