Trivia

This is the first episode in the entire series filmed without Ross Martin as Artemus Gordon. He had suffered a heart attack, so Charles Aidman replaced him as Jeremy Pike. Dialogue reveals that Artemus is busy in Washington. See more »

Goofs

Pike identifies the coded book as Shafton's Reflections on Good and Evil, Vol. 1, first edition, published in England, 1575. But the close-up of the page clearly reveals the book to be of much later date, with references to "Bat Masterson, one of Marshal Earp's deputies" and to "hit song stylist Arnie Haines." See more »

Presidential Candidate Appears on Wild West
4 August 2009 | by DKosty123See all my reviews

No doubt the illness of Ross Martin shows here and in a lot of the rest of season 4. Charles Aidman does his first turn as Jeremy Pike. Aidman turns out to be the best of the attempts to replace Martin on the show. This episode looks to take advantage with guest star Pat Paulsen.

About this time, Paulsen is appearing on the Smothers Brothers Comedy hour. He is running his TV campaign for President. While the script here makes every effort to take advantage Pat because of his popularity from the Smothers. The script doesn't quite bring Pat to life but it does have some moments. Overall this is OK, but not the strongest of episodes.
