Trivia

Ross Martin knew how to ride, but he only tolerated horses, he didn't love them. See more »

Goofs

The United States Secret Service is frequently employed as bodyguards for President Grant. But this was not the case in the 19th century, when the Service was a Treasury operation used to catch counterfeiters. The duty of being presidential bodyguards was assigned to the Secret Service in 1901 after President William McKinley's murder. McKinley's immediate successor Theodore Roosevelt was the first chief executive to benefit from this change. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening credits as originally designed for the pilot (and included on the season 1 DVD) show the animated cowboy knocking down the woman trying to stab him. In the first season as aired, the cowboy kisses the woman, who dreamily turns away instead of trying to stab him. Later episodes reinstated the cowboy knocking the woman down. See more »

Loved it, still do
30 July 1999 | by deb591See all my reviews

I have loved this show since I was a child and I still do. The chemistry between the two partners & friends is impeccable (not like the movie in which they were always at odds). And as a young girl, I was totally swept away with the James West character as played by Robert Conrad. There will never be another TV character or series to compare.
