Browse our picks. Title: The Wild Wild West — In , after years of retirement, West is called in from his Mexican home, and Gordon is taken off the road as a Shakespearian actor to track down and arrest Dr.

Michelito Loveless, Jr. Major Gregory "Pappy" Boyington and his U. An elite covert operations unit carries out highly sensitive missions subject to official denial in the event of failure, death or capture.

Two scientists with a secret time travel project find themselves trapped in the time stream and appearing in notable periods of history.

With mud-splattered realism, the show James West and Artemus Gordon are two agents of President Grant who take their splendidly appointed private train through the west to fight evil.

Half science fiction and half western, Artemus designs a series of interesting gadgets for James that would make Inspector Gadget proud.

A lighthearted adventure series. This show has a huge identity : the leitmotiv music and its different themes, the title design the freeze frame sketch , the bizarre universe and the foe-characters secret society, mad inventors, wizards, monsters, revolutionaries, corrupted politicians, putschists , the disguises and the gimmicks, the gorgeous women, a special sense of humour combined with camaraderie, action and stunts.

In other words, something that is very, very rich, colourful and varied and far away from today's imagination. In my opinion, the most important aspect of this unusual drama comes from the characters : James T.

West, the tough-as-nails dandiest dude secret agent with his fancy train and his fancy costumes full of hidden weapons I like the knife boots and the sleeve-gun, re-used by Martin Scorsese in "Taxi driver" who works with his partner : the dashing Artemus Gordon aka Arte who is an expert in masks, bombs, magic tricks and acting; the president Grant and the Colonel Richmond.

Above all, the regular outrageous villain that sums up the flavor of the series : Dr. Miguelito Loveless, the genius prankster dwarf.

The most clever device created by him is the painting-traveling machine in The night of the surreal Mc Coy. Without forgetting the flamboyant Count Manzeppi, of course, in The night of the eccentrics and The night of the feathered fury.

The whole show is a crazy circus : a madhouse. The series also makes reference to classic sci-fi novels such as : "The incredible shrinking man" in The night of the raven, "Frankenstein" in The night of the big blast, "The time machine" in The night of the lord of limbo.

They have the same psychologic patterns. Producer Bruce Lansbury and composer Richard Markowitz worked on both series. But the first series is delirious and the second one is stone-cold.

My advice is not to miss the Loveless episodes : 1. The night the wizard shook the earth, 2. The night that terror stalked the town, 3.

The night of the whirring death, 4. The night of the murderous spring, 5. The night of the raven, 6. The night of the green terror, 7.

The night of the surreal Mc Coy, 8. The night of the bogus bandit, 9. The night of Dr. Loveless died, The night of the Miguelito's revenge.

James West had served as an intelligence and cavalry officer in the American Civil War on Grant's staff; [5] his "cover," at least in the pilot episode, is that of "a dandy, a high-roller from the East.

Gordon, who was a captain in the Civil War, returns to show business when he retires as the head of a traveling Shakespeare players troupe.

In the tradition of James Bond , there were always beautiful women, clever gadgets, and delusional arch-enemies with half-insane plots to take over the country or the world.

The title of each episode begins with "The Night" except for the first-season episode "Night of the Casual Killer", which omitted the definite article "The".

This followed other idiosyncratic naming conventions established by shows such as Rawhide , where each episode title began with "Incident at" or "Incident of," and The Man from U.

Robert Conrad starred as James West. Rory Calhoun was initially announced for the part. Conrad claimed to be the 17th actor to test for the role.

Conrad performed nearly all of his own stunts in the series. Things started moving quicker when I took the jumps and the spills.

We started meeting the budget. On January 24, , however, during filming of "The Night of the Fugitives", Conrad fell from a chandelier onto the stage floor and suffered a concussion.

I was in intensive care for 72 hours, with a six-inch lineal fracture of the skull and a high temporal concussion. Conrad spent weeks in the hospital and had a long convalescence slowed by constant dizziness.

The episode was eventually completed and aired during the fourth season, with footage of the fall left in. It's a constant reminder to be careful.

It also bolstered my determination to make this my last year with the series. Four seasons are enough of this sort of thing.

Lucky from to , portraying Mr. Lucky's sidekick, Andamo. Martin once called his role as Artemus Gordon "a show-off's showcase" because it allowed him to portray over different characters during the course of the series, and perform dozens of different dialects.

Martin sketched his ideas for his characterizations and worked with the makeup artists to execute the final look.

Sometimes I feel like a one man repertory company. I think I've proven to myself and to the industry that I am the No.

Martin broke his leg in a fourth-season episode, "The Night of the Avaricious Actuary," when he dropped a rifle, stepped on it, and his foot rolled over it.

When the shell ejected from the rifle, it caught him in the eye and burned it. We still haven't finished that scene. It will have to wait until I can move around again.

A few weeks later, after completing "The Night of Fire and Brimstone", Martin suffered a heart attack on August 17, This was exactly two years after Michael Garrison died.

Martin's character was replaced temporarily by other agents played by Charles Aidman four episodes , Alan Hale, Jr. Aidman said the producers had promised to rewrite the scripts for his new character, but this simply amounted to scratching out the name "Artemus Gordon" and penciling in "Jeremy Pike" his character's name.

The show's most memorable recurring arch- villain was Dr. Miguelito Quixote Loveless , a brilliant but petulant and megalomaniacal dwarf portrayed by Michael Dunn.

Initially he had two companions: the huge Voltaire, played by Richard Kiel ; and the beautiful Antoinette, played by Dunn's real-life singing partner, Phoebe Dorin.

Voltaire disappeared without explanation after his third episode, and Antoinette after her sixth.

According to the TV movie The Wild Wild West Revisited , Loveless eventually dies in from ulcers , brought on by the frustration of having his plans consistently foiled by West and Gordon.

His son, played by Paul Williams , in the TV movies, subsequently seeks revenge on the agents. Though several actors appeared in different villainous roles, only one other character had a second encounter with West and Gordon: Count Manzeppi, played flamboyantly by Victor Buono.

Buono played a different villain in the pilot episode. Manzeppi was a diabolical genius of "black magic" and crime, who—like Dr.

Loveless—had an escape plan at the end. Henry Messenger", a parody of Henry Kissinger. While the show's writers created their fair share of villains, they often started with the nefarious, stylized and sometimes anachronistic inventions of these madmen or madwomen , and then wrote the episodes around these devices.

Henry Sharp, the series' story consultant, would sketch the preliminaries of the designs eccentrically numbering every sketch "fig.

Wells , and Jules Verne. In Ratoff and Michael Garrison formed a production company to make a "Casino Royale" film, with Ratoff set to direct and 20th Century Fox set to distribute.

Production stalled when Ratoff and Garrison could not obtain financing. Western novelist and screenwriter Clair Huffaker also worked on the concept.

It was his idea, for example, to have a secret agent named Jim West who would perform secret missions for President Ulysses S.

Ralston later sued Warner Bros. As indicated by Robert Conrad on his DVD commentary, the show went through several producers in its first season.

This was apparently due to conflicts between the network and Garrison, who had no experience producing for television and had trouble staying on budget.

At first, Ben Brady was named producer, but he was shifted to Rawhide , which had its own crisis when star Eric Fleming quit at the end of the season.

Rawhide lasted another thirteen episodes before it was cancelled by CBS. The network then hired Collier Young.

The Rogues , which he had produced, was about con men who swindled swindlers, much like the s series Switch. Young also claimed to have added the wry second "Wild" to the series title, which had been simply "The Wild West" in its early stages of production.

Conrad was not sorry to see Young go: "I don't mind. All that guy did creatively was put the second 'wild' in the title.

CBS did the right thing. Young's replacement, Fred Freiberger , returned the series to its original concept. It was on his watch that writer John Kneubuhl , inspired by a magazine article about Michael Dunn , created the arch-villain Dr.

Miguelito Loveless. Phoebe Dorin, who played Loveless' assistant, Antoinette, recalled: "Michael Garrison came to see [our] nightclub act when he was in New York.

Garrison said to himself, 'Michael Dunn would make the most extraordinary villain. People have never seen anything like him before, and he's a fabulous little actor and he's funny as hell.

He came backstage and he told us who he was and he said he was going to do a television show called The Wild Wild West and we would be called.

We thought, 'Yeah, yeah, we've heard all that before. And that's how it started, because he saw the nightclub act.

The character became an immediate hit and Dunn was contracted to appear in four episodes per season. Because of health problems, however, Dunn only appeared in 10 episodes instead of After ten episodes 5—14 , Freiberger and executive producer Michael Garrison were, according to Variety, "unceremoniously dumped," reputedly due to a behind-the-scenes power struggle.

Garrison was replaced by Phillip Leacock, the executive producer of Gunsmoke , and Freiberger was supplanted by John Mantley, an associate producer on Gunsmoke.

The exchange stunned both cast and crew. He turned the matter over to his attorneys. Freiberger said, "I was fired for accomplishing what I had been hired to do.

I was hired to pull the show together when it was in chaos. Let's face it, the show is healthy. I think Fred Freiberger is totally correct in his concept of the show.

It's an administrative change, for what reason I don't know. Mantley produced seven 15—21 episodes then returned to his former position on Gunsmoke , and Gene L.

Coon took over as associate producer. By then, Garrison's conflict with CBS was resolved and he returned to the executive producer role.

Coon left after six episodes 22—27 to write First to Fight , a Warner Bros. Garrison produced the last episode of season one and the initial episodes of season two.

Garrison's return was much to the relief of Ross Martin, who once revealed that he was so disenchanted during the first season that he tried to quit three times.

He explained that Garrison "saw the show as a Bond spoof laid in , and we all knew where we stood. Each new producer tried to put his stamp on the show and I had a terrible struggle.

I fought them line by line in every script. They knew they couldn't change the James West role very much, but it was open season on Artemus Gordon because they had never seen anything like him before.

On August 17, , however, during production of the new season's ninth episode, "The Night of the Ready-Made Corpse", Garrison fell down a flight of stairs in his home, fractured his skull, and died.

When he was tapped for The Wild Wild West, Lansbury was working with his twin brother, Edgar , producing legitimate theater on Broadway.

The first season's episodes were filmed in black and white, and they were darker in tone. The acre lot was formerly the home of Republic Studios , which specialized in low-budget films including Westerns starring Roy Rogers and Gene Autry and Saturday morning serials which The Wild Wild West appropriately echoed.

In the mids the western streets and sets were replaced with new sound stages and urban facades, including the New York streets seen in Seinfeld.

In the lagoon set that was originally constructed for Gilligan's Island was paved over to create a parking lot. Footage of this train, with a 5 replacing the 3 on its number plate, was shot in Jamestown, California.

When The Wild Wild West went into series production, however, an entirely different train was employed. The locomotive, a named the Inyo, was built in by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in Philadelphia.

The Inyo, as well as the express car and the passenger car, originally served the Virginia and Truckee Railroad in Nevada.

Footage of the Inyo in motion and idling was shot around Menifee, California , and reused in virtually every episode. Stock footage of Sierra No.

These trains were used only for exterior shots. Neither Stage 6 or the western streets still exist. The State of Nevada purchased the Inyo in ; it was restored to vintage, including a wider smoke stack and a new pilot cow catcher without a drop coupler.

The express car No. For its role as "The Wanderer" in the film, the engine was sent to the steam shops at the Strasburg Rail Road for restoration and repainting.

The Wild Wild West featured numerous, often anachronistic, gadgets. Some were recurring devices, such as West's sleeve gun or a breakaway derringer hidden in his left and right boot heels.

Others appeared in only a single episode. The main title theme was written by Richard Markowitz , who previously composed the theme for the TV series The Rebel.

He was brought in after the producers rejected two attempts by film composer Dimitri Tiomkin. That took it away from the serious kind of thing that Tiomkin was trying to do What I did essentially was write two themes: the rhythmic, contemporary theme, Fender bass and brushes, that vamp, for the cartoon effects and for West's getting himself out of trouble, and the heraldic western outdoor theme over that, so that the two worked together.

Markowitz, however, was never credited for his theme in any episode; it is believed [ by whom? Markowitz did receive "music composed and conducted by" credits for episodes he'd scored such as "The Night of the Bars of Hell" and "The Night of the Raven" or where he supplied the majority of tracked-in cues for example in "The Night of the Grand Emir" and "The Night of the Gypsy Peril".

He finally received "theme by" credit on both of the TV movies, which were scored by Jeff Alexander rather than Markowitz few personnel from the series were involved with the TV movies.

The animated title sequence was another unique element of the series. The screen was divided into four corner panels abutting a narrow central panel that contained a cartoon "hero".

In the three seasons shot in color, the overall backdrop was an abstracted wash of the flag of the United States , with the upper left panel colored blue and the others containing horizontal red stripes.

Each episode had four acts. At the end of each act, the scene, usually a cliffhanger moment, would freeze, and a sketch or photograph of the scene faded in to replace the cartoon art in one of the four corner panels.

The style of freeze-frame art changed over the course of the series. In all first-season episodes other than the pilot, the panels were live-action stills made to evoke 19th-century engravings.

In season two the first in color the scenes dissolved to tinted stills; from "The Night of the Flying Pie Plate" on, however, the panels were home to Warhol -like serigraphs of the freeze-frames.

The end credits were displayed over each episode's unique mosaic of scenes. In the final season, however, a generic design was used under the end credits.

Curiously, in this design, the bank robber is unconscious, the cardsharp has no card and the lady is on the ground, but the sixshooter in the upper left-hand panel has returned.

The freeze-frame graphics were shot at a facility called Format Animation. During the first season, the series title "The Wild Wild West" was set in the font Barnum, [34] which resembles the newer font P.

In subsequent seasons, the title appeared in a hand-drawn version of the font Dolphin which resembles newer fonts called Zebrawood, Circus, and Rodeo Clown.

Robert Conrad's name was also set in this font. Ross Martin's name was set in the font Bracelet which resembles newer fonts named Tuscan Ornate and Romantiques.

All episode titles, writer and director credits, guest cast and crew credits were set in Barnum. The series is generally set during the presidency of Ulysses S.

Grant from —77; occasional episodes indicate a more precise date:. Some episodes were considered violent for their time and that, rather than low ratings ultimately was the series' downfall.

In addition to gunplay, there were usually two fight sequences per episode. After Conrad suffered a concussion falling from a chandelier in "The Night of the Fugitives," the network insisted that he defer to a stunt double.

Often, George would start a stunt, such as a high fall or a dive through a window then land behind boxes or off camera where Conrad was hidden and waiting to seamlessly complete the action.

This same ploy was often used by Ross Martin and Bob Herron. This common stunt technique is known by filmmakers as "The Texas Switch. It was hazardous work.

Hughes recalled, "We had a lot of crashes. We used to say, 'Roll the cameras and call the ambulances! Robert Conrad: 6-inch fracture of the skull, high temporal concussion, partial paralysis.

Ross Martin: broken leg. A broken skull for Red West. Broken leg for Jimmy George. Broken arm for Jack Skelly. And Michael Dunn: head injury and a spinal sprain.

He did his own stunts. And on and on. Following the assassinations of Dr.
