This is not vintage W3.
15 December 2012 | by (working in Movieland) – See all my reviews

*Spoiler/plot- TNOT Death Mask, 68. West and Gordon mistakenly become part of a bizarre vengeance plot involving mistaken identities.

*Special Stars- Robert Conrad, Ross Martin, Milton Selzer, Patty McCormack.

*Theme- Seeking revenge is often a energy consuming goal.

*Trivia/location/goofs- Air date 1-26-68. Takes place in Como Creek Nv. Mr. Conrad's short stature/height for a leading man (5'7") was compensated for with shoe 'lifts' in his boots, casting short stunt people, and short leading ladies. In fact his show was known for needing so many short stature love-interest roles for women among females actresses, it became a staple for actresses in Hollywood.

*Emotion- Vengeance scenarios have become overused and too boring with this production company in Season Three. I was not impressed by the 'Emmet Stark revenge' scenario plot line. The guest star lead villain's performance is forgettable, especially since you only see him very late in the episode.....many time villain roles fail to deliver enough 'gravitas' to balance with the strong leads of Conrad and Martin. The inclusion of psychological drama between West and Gordon spiced-up the drama. This is not vintage W3.
