After resigning, a secret agent is abducted and taken to what looks like an idyllic village, but is really a bizarre prison. His warders demand information. He gives them nothing, but only tries to escape.
Although the name of the territory in which this episode takes place is never mentioned, Colorado was the only state admitted to the union during Grant's presidency, with the proclamation being signed on 2 August 1876. The next states to be admitted were North and South Dakota, on 2 November 1889, twelve years after Grant left office (and four years after his death). It's unlikely that politicians in Dakota Territory would be anticipating statehood that far in advance. The last territorial governor of Colorado was John Long Routt, appointed by President Grant on 29 March 1875; he also served as the first state governor until 14 January 1879. See more »

*Spoiler/plot- TNOT Legion of Death, 1967, West and Gordon uncover an unscrupulous plot devised by an ambitious dictatorial governor who has plans to become President of the U.S.
*Special Stars- Robert Conrad, Ross Martin, Anthony Zerbe, Kent Smith.
*Theme- Politics is a shallow and dirty business.
*Trivia/location/goofs- Air date 11-24-67. Takes place western territory. The fold-able rifle used by West to save Gordon from hanging was a Matel toy rifle available at in 1967. 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- I was entertained but not impressed by the 'power behind the throne' scenario plot line. Anthony Zerbe's performance sets the bar extremely high on the guest star lead villain's performance.....many time villain roles fail to deliver enough 'gravitas' to balance with the strong leads of Conrad and Martin. This was more like an opera or Shakespeare with it's drama. The inclusion of territorial statehood and elections for governor spiced-up the drama intensity. This is vintage W3 intrigue at it's best.
