Trivia

The vase destroyed in this episode is identical to the one that is destroyed in The Wild Wild West: The Night of the Torture Chamber (1965). See more »

Goofs

West is being tortured supposedly for hours by the bells ringing. On two shots, a thin rope is seen attached to the arm that holds the bells. The rope would have been pulled to ring the bells. Someone with the cunning of West would have noticed this rope in the hours of torture and either untied it or cut it as it was not out of his reach. See more »

Quotes

James T. West: [In response to Dr. Arcularis' sadistic demonstration on a caged prisoner] It's too bad you weren't around during the Inquisition. You would have been very good at it.
Dr. Arcularis: Yes, I've often regretted that.

The mad Pavlovian doctor
24 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have this season on disc(25 shows) and this is one of Robert Conrad's favorite shows. It is also one of my favorite shows.

I want to point out that at the beginning of each show there is a little "debriefing" by James West himself. I also want to point out that if you do not want to know anything about the story, do not listen to Robert Conrad's introduction. In my mind, that intro is full of spoilers.

The madman in the "The Howling Light" is a scientist and technically a clinical psychologist. A cruel, sick, Pavlovian behaviorist. The other guest star is a Native American, most likely educated in American schools, yet a vehement man who does not like whites. Probably despises them, but does not like Ocularis much either.
