Trivia

The character Lola Cortez, introduced as a dancer and actress, may be a reference to Lola Montez (1821-1861), a dancer who was notorious for her connection to famous men of her era, including Franz Liszt and King Ludwig I of Bavaria, from whom she received the title Countess of Landsfeld. Her last years were spent in New York. See more »

Goofs

When West attacks the two guys who find him in Lola Cortez's room they both crash into a chest of drawers, destroying it. However, there are no drawers in the chest, as it is a cheap fake designed to break apart so the stuntmen don't get hurt. See more »

Wild and Wilder
1 May 2008 | by paulbraschSee all my reviews

You have to love any television show that has the good sense to cast Sherry Jackson in it.

Fan favourite for being in so many genre shows on television she shines in this episode as Lola Cortez.

William Schallert, later of Hardy Boys fame plays the rotten old games master and as these supposed rich people all wander around in a room playing games and vying for gifts the boys have to find an explosive which will explode in a number of hours.

It really doesn't make any sense but the colors to the show are vibrant and everybody looks like they're having a great time making it.

Enjoyable.
