Did You Know?

Trivia

At one point, they considered calling the show "The Wild West West" after West's character. The name was changed before the show aired. See more »

Goofs

The train car has numerous hidden compartments which slide out of the wall or down from the ceiling. In actuality these compartments are much too large to fit inside the walls of the car and would extend out past the sides and roof. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening credits as originally designed for the pilot (and included on the season 1 DVD) show the animated cowboy knocking down the woman trying to stab him. In the first season as aired, the cowboy kisses the woman, who dreamily turns away instead of trying to stab him. Later episodes reinstated the cowboy knocking the woman down. See more »

Have Gun, Will Travel Meets the Avengers
2 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

In 1965 someone had the bright idea to mix the two most popular genres at that time, spy shows and westerns, and came up with this classic series. The western elements were obviously the horses, Indians and a strong hero and the espionage elements were the gadgets and megalomaniacal villains. Robert Conrad was excellent as Jim West and Ross Martin was just as great as the master of disguise Artemis Gordon. This chemistry between the two leads helped to make this show a classic. However, Michael Dunn pretty much stole the show as Miguelito Loveless, or as Artie would often call him, "The Little Wizard". This show will always be one of the wildest things about the decade of the 60's.
