Storyline

When a lady passenger on a stage turns out to be a mannequin full of boll weevils, agents West and Gordon investigate. West finds the man behind the operation - Abdul Hassan - who reveals he is spreading the weevils throughout the country to ruin the nation's cotton crops and replace them with his own, thereby controlling the cotton market. The abduction of the San Francisco Commissioner of Harbors' daughter complicates things further, and West and Gordon search the docks for clues to the syndicate's secrets. Written by Twenty Penguins

Theo Marcuse's final performance.
13 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

A sad piece of trivia. Theo Marcuse was killed in a car wreck during production of this episode on 11-29-67. It is obvious it a different actor in several scenes as a stand in Mr. Marcuse did not complete. A talented versatile actor. Everyone involved in episode does admirable job in their roles. Amazing to see similar sets used on several different westerns at the time. Gunsmoke, Big Valley, even Gilligans Island were all filmed on same lot. Dawn Wells proved she looked hot in anything she wore in any period piece. Could see the development of Conrad's talent during run of the series. He continued to improve as an actor. Ross Martin along with Martin Landau from MISSION IMPOSSIBLE were in my opinion the two best actors on television at the time.
