Summary of The Wild Wild West The Complete Series DVD
Before The Wild Wild West, Robert Conrad played private eye Tom Lopaka in ABC's Hawaiian Eye for four seasons, 1959-63. Conrad claimed to be the 17th actor to test for the role of James West. (Rory Calhoun was initially announced for the part.) Conrad performed nearly all of his own stunts on The Wild Wild West. "For the first few episodes we tried stuntmen," Conrad explained, "but the setup time slowed production down, so I volunteered. Things started moving quicker when I took the jumps and the spills. We started meeting the budget."He was occasionally doubled on the more dangerous stunts by Louie Elias or Chuck O’Brien. On January 24, 1968, however, during filming of "The Night of the Fugitives," Conrad fell 12 ft (3.7 m) from a chandelier onto a concrete floor and suffered a concussion.As a result, production of the series (then near the end of its third season) ended two weeks early. 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.Prior to The Wild Wild West.
