Wild Wild West Tidbits

In the 1870s dashing secret agent Jim West (Robert Conrad) and actor turned agent Artemus (Artie) Gordon (Ross Martin) investigated on behalf of President Ulysses S. Grant (James Gregory).

The agents ran the operation from a specially modified 1860 2-4-0 steam engine that included a luxury passenger car called the Nimrod. This allowed them to wander the West searching out bad men who threatened America.

Of course every agent needs a "cover" and Jim West was posing as " the dandiest dude who ever crossed the Mississippi in his own train." Partner Artie Gordon was a master of disguise and this showcased the versatility of Ross Martin to play different roles.

None of which begins to discuss the gadgets which Gordon produced.

The best episodes were those with recurring character Dr. Miguelito Loveless (Michael Dunn). The diminutive Dr. Loveless proved to be a worthy adversary for the agents. (See Below)

Passings

Michael Dunn comitted suicide in 1973 as did Douglas Henderson in 1978. Ross Martin died in 1981. Charles Aidman died in 1993 of cancer.

Wild Wild West Trivia

Dr. Miguelito Loveless appeared in 10 episodes. He was played by Michael Dunn. In the series he was from a family which had received a valuable land grant in California from the government of the Viceroy of Mexico under Spain. Their family had then lost it when Mexico lost California to the United States. His original goal seems to have been recovery of his family's property; however as the series progressed he became more and more megalomaniacal.
