Wild Wild West

Night of the Egyptian Queen, #6808

Agent Artemus Gordon and the curator of the San Francisco Museum are set upon in the Egyptian exhibit by three men wearing gas masks. When agent West and Mr. Heisel, the Egyptian government's representative, enter the room, they are also attacked. After regaining consciousness, the men discover that a priceless ruby has been stolen from the eye of the statue of the Sun God, Ra. Commissioned by Miasmin, an Egyptian princess, to recover the gem, West and Gordon trace a ransom note to a waterfront bar where Gordon poses as a sea captain. At the bar, West recognizes one of his assailants from the museum. The man identifies himself as Jason and indicates that Rosie, a beautiful young dancer at the bar, is wearing the ruby on her toe. Unfortunately, Rosie vanishes before West can make a move.

Director Marvin Chomsky remembers the elaborate fight sequence in this episode: "The script said to destroy a bar so I got about twenty-five of the best stunt guys, and I let them do their best stunt. What we had was a wild and rowdy bar fight. We worked our way around for each stuntman to do their best work."
