Did You Know?


This is the episode in which a notorious stunt mishap nearly cost Robert Conrad his life or serious permanent injury. The shot was left in and you can clearly see the impact Conrad's head makes with the concrete floor of the sound stage after he loses his grip on the chandelier. The end of the scene with West rising to his feet was shot months later. See more »

Go West!
30 April 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Well here we go with the running, jumping, episode. Never in any other episode will you see more of James West moving around as much as this show. There is much to like in this episode, what with Simon Oakland, who was terrific in The Night Stalker, as the heavy Diamond Dave, Arte in disguise as a con artist preacher, Norbit the creepy woman-loving book-keeper and a script by the wonderful Paul Playdon who wrote a lot of the better Mission Impossibles it is a good episode let down by a weak finale. This is also the episode where Conrad nearly died in a very bad fall and it's all on camera for you to see. And boy it looks nasty. Overall good stuff.
