Did You Know?


The character Janus, who obtains a new face, references the Roman god of the same name, who was known for having two faces. See more »


When Miguelito Loveless and Jim West are talking in the saloon, surrounded by mannequins, the woman at the end of the bar is an extra posing as a mannequin (perhaps to avoid constructing so many for only a few scenes); when West breaks the bottle to threaten Dr. Loveless, she blinks - perhaps in response to the sudden noise.

One West, Two Wests, One Janus, Two Janus
10 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second Dr. Loveless episode of this series is directed by Alvin Ginzer whose first work behind the camera appears to be Million Dollar Legs starring Betty Grable no less. Ginzer is a veteran director with a lot of television under his belt by the time he directs here. He has already tackled episodes of Gunsmoke & Half Gun Will Travel, as well as other shows.

This episode is about Loveless trying to create his own West to take care of the real West & Artie so that Loveless can then get back into his plotting to take over the world. This one employs some tricky camera work in that Conrad has 2 roles. Artie intervenes in the last part to help sort things out only to confront West & Janus and get confused too.

Richard Kiel is along for his second outing. Overall, you can't lose if you catch the good Doctor trying to finish off West in any episode of this series.
