When Le Cochon demonstrates his metal leg by kicking and breaking the bench, the break is so straight on the diagonal that it was obviously pre-cut. See more »

The devil of Devil's Island
15 December 2013 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Jim takes the place of a French prisoner on the infamous Devil's Island because he wants to rescue an agent named 'Vincent Reed' ( Tom Drake ). The Kommandant is the sadistic 'Gustave Mauvais ) and when Jim stops a roller from crushing an elderly prisoner, he finds himself in a pit with other men, including the one he is searching for. The question now is - how to get him out? Perhaps Mauvais' sexy wife 'Camille' ( Joan Huntington ) might have the answer...

By 'Wild, Wild West' standards, this is fairly conventional stuff. I think on reflection it would have better suited the black and white Season 1. 'Papillon' it is certainly not. This was Marcuse's second time in the show, the last was as 'Dr.Vincent Kirby' in 'The Night Of The Sudden Plague'. No gadgets for Jim here. We never find out just how Reed wound up on Devil's Island nor why he is deemed important enough to stage a break-out. Arte's main contribution is to pose as a Foreign Legion officer on the island because of cowardice.
