Ties, Buy My Ties
21 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The stealing of a diplomatic elephant (not a Republican) but a rare elephant that is here from an obscure kingdom being transported as a gift on Wests train is the center of the plot here. The thieves steal the elephant, disguise it, & then hide it in a Gypsy camp. West & Artie then find the camp & try to expose the plot. The twist here is that the elephant stolen is not really what it seems to be.

While at the camp, Conrad gets to show off his muscles & his seduction techniques on a Gypsy woman. Artie come to the camp as a peddler selling ties. Overall, this episode is good with a few touches of humor. The plot is not unraveled until the paint is washed off the gypsy elephant exposing the plot.

When the elephant is stolen & at the camp there are some decent stunt sequences for Robert Conrad.
