Wild Wild West

Night of the Casual Killer, #6505

James and Artemus are entrusted to do what the Army couldn't: penetrate the stronghold of a corrupt political boss John Avery (John Dehner) and return him to Washington for trial, after a man from the Attorny General's office is killed trying to bring him in. The duo poses as Shakespearean actors to gain entrance to Avery's fortress, but things turn sour soon after.

Ironicly, John Dehner turned down the role of Marshall Dillon in "Gunsmoke" because he didn't want to be typecast in westerns, but later starred as the San Francisco gunman for hire in radio's "Have Gun, Will Travel" series written by Gene Roddenberry.
