*Spoiler/plot- TNOT Vipers, 68. This TV show takes you on death-defying
top-secret assignments that push your imagination to the limit. Take an
unforgettable journey in a private train(The Wanderer) in the old It
takes you alongside the USA's best secret agents, men who lay their
lives on the line to protect the security of President Grant and the
U.S. from all manner of threats and by any means necessary. Take a ride
alongside the USA's best secret agents, men who lay their lives on the
line to protect the security of President Grant and the U.S. from all
manner of threats and by any means necessary. West and Gordon discover
a plan by an ruthlessly ambitious man to wishes to capture the
political lead as a new governor.
*Special Stars- Robert Conrad, Ross Martin, Nick Adams.
*Theme- Unchecked political ambition is always dangerous.
*Trivia/location/goofs- Air date 1-12-68. Takes place in Cottonwood,
Ks. After the first fist fight, West's shirt becomes torn and wet,
changing back and forth every shot. Nick Adams was a personal friend of
Robert Conrad for many years since they started in Hollywood around the
same time. They are the same height. 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 not impressed by the 'ambitious governor candidate'
scenario plot line. The guest star lead villain's performance is
forgettable.....many time villain roles fail to deliver enough
'gravitas' to balance with the strong leads of Conrad and Martin. The
inclusion of Nick Adams spiced-up the drama. This is not vintage W3.
