Wild Wild West

Night of the Vicious Valentine, #6620

Agents West and Gordon are sent to investigate the killings of wealthy industrialists and find that all are linked back to an evil matchmaker, Emma Valentine (Agnes Moorehead). She sets the rich men up with her young female employees, then kills them to gain their money and power. West and Gordon manage to escape from the trap she lays from her and must prevent her next target from getting married.

Agnes Moorehead was one of Orson Welles' group of actors in the Mercury Theater, taking part in the infamous War Of The Worlds 1939 broadcast, and costarring with Welles in the long-running radio series The Shadow. Starring in many movies, she is best remembered by fans an Endora, Darrin's witch-mother in law in Bewitched. This role on Wild Wild West was one of the few that was as flamboyant as the villains on the popular Batman tv series, with Moorehead in a role similar to Black Widow.
