Episodes Seasons. Infiltrating Loveless's plantation during a party, the duo rescue a woman named Rita Escobar. She asks for their help in rescuing her professor-father Guillermo Escobar, one of the kidnapped scientists.
Loveless holds a demonstration of his newest weapon, a steam-powered tank , and angers McGrath by using his soldiers as target practice.
Accusing McGrath of "betrayal" for surrendering at Appomattox , Loveless shoots him and leaves him for dead. The three caught up with Loveless on The Wanderer.
After a brief fight, Rita accidentally releases sleeping gas which knocks out West, Gordon and herself. Announcing his intention to capture President Grant at the golden spike ceremony, he leaves the duo in a deadly trap which they evade.
West and Gordon stumble across Loveless's private railroad, leading to his secret industrial complex at Spider Canyon.
They witness Loveless's ultimate weapon: a gigantic mechanical spider armed with nitroglycerin cannons. Loveless uses his spider to capture Grant and Gordon at the ceremony.
As West attempts to infiltrate the spider, he is shot in the chest by Munitia, one of Loveless's bodyguards. At his complex, Loveless threatens to destroy the United States with his mechanized forces unless Grant divides the states among Great Britain , France , Spain , Mexico , the Native American people and Loveless himself.
After Grant refuses, West - having survived both the shot and the fall - disguises himself as a belly dancer. He distracts Loveless, allowing Gordon to free the captives.
Loveless escapes on his mechanical spider, taking Grant with him. He attacks a small town, and again demands that Grant accept his terms of surrender.
Grant continues to reject Loveless's ultimatum. Using an "Air Gordon" flying machine, Gordon and West catch up to the spider. West battles the henchmen before confronting Loveless, who is now on mechanical legs.
After freeing Grant, Gordon shoots one of Loveless's legs, allowing West to gain the upper hand. As the mechanical spider approaches a cliff, Loveless shoots at West with the concealed gun he used to kill McGrath.
He misses and instead hits the spider's machinery, halting it abruptly at the canyon's edge. Both West and Loveless fall from the spider, but West survives by catching a chain which dangles from the machinery.
She announces that Professor Escobar is actually her husband. Gordon and West ride into the sunset on the spider. Variety first reported in January that Warner Bros.
However, Donner and Gibson left the project to work on a film adaptation of Maverick in Nonetheless, the project continued in the development stage with Tom Cruise rumored for the lead in However, Cruise instead starred in a film adaptation of Mission: Impossible the following year.
Wilson and Brent Maddock best known for writing the Short Circuit and Tremors films were hired by the studio to script the film between April and May Principal photography was expected to begin in January ,  but was pushed to April 22, The film featured several significant changes from the television series.
For example, Dr. Loveless — as portrayed by Kenneth Branagh in the film — went from a dwarf to a man without legs and confined in a steam-powered wheelchair similar to that employed by the villain in the episode "The Night of the Brain" ; his first name was also changed from Miguelito to Arliss and was given the motive of a Southerner who sought the defeat of the North after the Civil War.
Kevin Kline plays Gordon, whose character was similar to the original version portrayed by Ross Martin except that he was much more competitive with Jim West besides being much more egotistical.
The film's script had Kline's Gordon create more ridiculous, humorous and implausible inventions than those created by Martin's Gordon in the television series, as well as having an aggressive rivalry with West whereas in the television series he and West had a very close friendship and trusted each other with their lives.
Additionally, on the TV series West was portrayed by Robert Conrad , a Caucasian rather than an African American — which serves a critical plot point as West's parents were among the victims of Loveless's massacre at New Liberty.
Jon Peters produced the film alongside director Sonnenfeld. The first demand was that Superman not wear the suit, the second was that Superman not fly and the third was to have Superman fight a giant spider in the third act.
A year later, he noted that Wild Wild West , with Peters on board as producer, was released with the inclusion of a giant mechanical spider in the final act.
Filming began in The sequences on both Artemus Gordon's and Dr. Loveless's trains interiors were shot on sets at Warner Bros.
The train exteriors were shot in Idaho on the Camas Prairie Railroad. During pre-production the engine was sent to the steam shops at the Strasburg Rail Road for restoration and repainting.
The "William Mason" and the "Inyo" which was the locomotive used in the original television series both appeared in the Disney film The Great Locomotive Chase.
During the shooting of a sequence involving stunts and pyrotechnics, a planned building fire grew out of control and quickly overwhelmed the local fire crews that were standing by.
Much of the town was destroyed before the fire was contained. The film's orchestral score, including its main theme, was composed and conducted by Elmer Bernstein , a veteran of many western film scores such as The Magnificent Seven.
CBS-TV was never really very eager to cancel this series, since over a four-year run that began in the Wild Wild West had been a solid winner in the ratings.
Cancellation came mainly because CBS officials were concerned about the criticism over televised violence and to a lesser degree because Robert Conrad had grown slightly weary of the role of James West.
None of the replacements have done nearly as well and, as a result, all of the Friday programs suffered. That fall, CBS put the program into syndication , giving it new life on local stations across the country.
This further antagonized the anti-violence lobby, since the program was now broadcast weekdays and often after school.
The suit said the series "contains fictionalized violence and horror harmful to the mental health and well-being of minor children", and should not air before 9 pm.
Corporan, was quoted as saying, "Since programs directed specifically at children are broadcast in the late afternoon by three other TV stations, it is our purpose to counter-program with programming not directed specifically at children.
Court of Appeals upheld the district court decision dismissing the suit on the grounds that FIT had not exhausted the administrative remedies available to them.
By then, WTOP had stopped broadcasting the series altogether. In Los Angeles, such shows opened with a cautionary announcement: "Parents — we wish to advise that because of violence or other possible harmful elements, certain portions of the following program may not be suitable for young children.
By then The Wild Wild West was running on 99 local stations. By the spring of the original series was still carried on 74 local stations.
In the late s the series was still seen on local stations in Boston, Hartford, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles, among other cities.
Significantly, WGN Chicago , which carried the show at 10 a. The series was dropped from WGN soon after.
Hallmark Channel aired the series in as part of its slate of Saturday afternoon Westerns but dropped it after only a few weeks. While the series became scarce on television, each season was released on DVD, beginning with season one in and concluding with the final season early in see below.
In it was announced that the series was being prepped for Blu-ray. On January 1, , MeTV began running the series weekday afternoons again, starting with second season color episodes.
It no longer airs on MeTV as of September It also airs in the United Kingdom as of on the Horror Channel on Sky channel , Virgin channel , Freeview channel 70 and Freesat channel Michael Dunn, who played Dr.
Loveless in the original show, had died in Loveless planned to substitute clones for the crowned heads of Europe and the President of the United States.
This plot is similar to the second-season episode "The Night of the Brain", which featured a different villain.
Most of the exteriors were filmed at Old Tucson Studios where there are western sets and a functioning steam train and tracks. Ross Martin said, "We worked on a lot of the same sets at the studio, including the interiors of the old train.
The script, unlike the old shows, is played strictly for comedy. It calls for us to be ten years older than when we were last seen.
There are a lot more laughs than adventure. This explains why the story begins with various clones of Paradine being murdered; the first film ends with word that Loveless had cloned himself five times.
Paradine planned world conquest using a formula for invisibility, recalling the first-season episode "The Night of the Burning Diamond".
Both films were directed by veteran comedy Western director Burt Kennedy and written by William Bowers in the latter case with Tony Kayden, from a story by Bowers ; neither Kennedy nor Bowers worked on the original series.
Beauchamp of a short story by Beauchamp. Conrad was later quoted in Cinefantastique about these films: "We all got along fine with each other when we did these, but I wasn't happy with them only because CBS imposed a lot of restrictions on us.
They never came up to the level of what we had done before. Warner Bros. Donner had directed three episodes of the original series.
In , as the film was still being developed with other directors, writers and stars, Gilbert Ralston, who wrote the TV pilot, sued Warner Bros.
Ralston died in before his suit was settled; however, Warner Bros. In , a theatrical feature-length film co-produced and directed by Barry Sonnenfeld was released as Wild Wild West without the definite article used in the series title.
Loosely based on the original series, the film re-imagined James West as a black man played by Will Smith , and Artemus Gordon played by Kevin Kline was portrayed as egotistical and bitterly competitive with West.
Significant changes were also made to Dr. Loveless played by Kenneth Branagh. No longer a dwarf, he was portrayed as a legless double amputee confined to a steam-powered wheelchair similar to that employed by the villain in the episode "The Night of the Brain".
Loveless, whose first name was changed from Miguelito to Arliss, was a bitter Southerner who sought revenge on the North after the American Civil War.
Robert Conrad was reportedly offered a cameo as President Grant but turned it down when the producers wanted him to read for the part.
He was outspoken in his criticism of the film, which was now a comedic showcase for Will Smith with little in common with the original series. He was not opposed to casting a black actor as Jim West: "The African-American casting of that role is probably and should not be an issue," Conrad said.
I appreciate his popularity. However, I'd prefer an actor with more athletic prowess. He's a good comedian but just not my choice to play my role.
Best would be a Wesley Snipes body with a Denzel Washington head. I said, 'Why are we going in this direction. Why not just play James West black without explaining it?
Loveless, and he was by far the best villain on the show," Conrad said. He also had a long-standing feud with producer Jon Peters.
Conrad later took special delight in accepting the Golden Raspberry Awards for the film in I made a mistake on Wild Wild West.
That could have been better. And now I get it. It's like, 'That's my baby! I put my blood, sweat and tears into that!
Conrad for that because I didn't realize. I was young and immature. So much pain and joy went into [my series] The Fresh Prince that my greatest desire would be that it's left alone.
Although it was touted as a special 40th anniversary edition, it appeared 41 years after the show's debut.
Robert Conrad recorded audio introductions for all 28 first-season episodes, plus a commentary track for the pilot.
The second season was released on DVD on March 20, ; the third season was released on November 20, ; and the fourth and final season was released on March 18, None of the later season sets contained bonus material.
A disc complete series set was released on November 4, On May 12, , CBS Home Entertainment released a repackaged version of the complete series set, at a lower price, but did not include the bonus disc that was part of the original complete series set.
All of the episodes are presented in English with French subtitles, and several episode titles differ in translation from the original English titles.
Both TV movies are included as extras, but only in French-dubbed versions. A sequel to the TV series, it involved Dr. Loveless in a conspiracy to assassinate President Grant and the President of Brazil and put the Knights of the Golden Circle into power.
The characters of Voltaire and Antoinette were prominent here, despite their respective early departures from Dr. Loveless' side in the original program.
A review from the Mile High Comics site states: "This mini-series perfectly captures the fun mixture of western and spy action that marked the ground-breaking s TV series.
President Lincoln states his famous quip that, if General U. Grant is a drunk, he should send whatever he's drinking to his other less successful generals.
As with many television series, The Wild Wild West had several merchandise tie-ins during its run. These are listed below. I watched both in syndication in the '70s.
Wild Wild West was really interesting, that combination of genres—a Western and secret agent, and they dabbled in the occult and paranormal.
I really wanted to do a new version for CBS. I still think it's a great property. Someday I hope to go back to it. A fan-produced webseries titled Back to the Wild Wild West began production in November , but apparently has been stalled.
