Did You Know?


Surrealism is a movement that began in the 1920s, expressed in many different forms including literature, art, music, photography, film and theater. It is characterized by apparent paradoxes and conflicts between perceived and actual reality. Among the most famous of the surrealists were painters René Magritte and Salvador Dalí and photographers Man Ray and Ralph Meatyard. Surrealism is also considered to have been on strong influence on animated cartoons, The Beatles, Bob Dylan and many others. Its influence on popular culture has declined since the 1960s saw the death of a number of the movement's major figures. Dr. Loveless' brand of surrealism here anticipated the artistic movement by about fifty years. The word "surrealism" first appeared in English in 1925. See more »


Jim West: I thought you were dead.
Dr. Miguelito Loveless: Oh, no, Mr. West! I'm afraid I shall never die. Death is too ordinary. The humiliation would kill me.

A great episode for this series
29 October 2011 | by (working in Movieland) – See all my reviews

*Spoiler/plot- 1967, Dr. Loveless perfects traveling through paintings through a bogus Wellington's painting thanks to a sound device activated by a his tuning fork to steal national painting treasures to get money millions to profit one of his schemes. Dr. Loveless again tries to eliminate Agent West by having West face the seven fastest Western gunmen alive including gunslinger, Lightnin' McCoy.

*Special Stars- Michael Dunn, Robert Conrad, Ross Martin, John Doucette

*Theme- When there's 'West' on the case, there's hope.

*Based on- Steam punk novels and secret agent craze of the early 60's.

*Trivia/location/goofs- This features a great recurring guest character: Dr. Miguelitto Loveless. This is the first Dr. Loveless show without Antoinette, his loving sidekick and main lady. Mr. Martin poses as a fake menacing Lightnin' McCoy.

*Emotion- A great episode for this series. This episode idea is charming and typical of a man of culture as Dr. Loveless and foretells about Season 4 of this series. I love the scene in the saloon when "McCoy" comes down the stairs and walks past Jim. You aren't quite sure if he's figured out it's Gordon yet. And there are some great lines as well. One line I like in particular is during the street fight involving Artie and Jim are behind the wagon. Jim says "What happened to the real McCoy?" Artie's reply, "He couldn't handle my liquor". John Doucette is masterful as Axel Morgan and he's at his best as Dr Loveless' partner/heavy.
