Both shows had at least one good ole fashioned fistfight per episode. Most had multiples! RIP Major.

Still liked this show when it came back on reruns when my kids were little. My favorite Robert Conrad moment was when he had to race Gabe Kaplan at the end of one of those Network Battle of T & A and Kaplan kicked his butt. Dracula had feet of clay after all. Still a fan.

Before Wild, Wild West and Baa Baa Black Sheep he was the co-star in Hawaiian Eye.
I remember the commercial where he dared you to knock the battery off his shoulder.
Did most of his own stunts.
Good memories. He will be missed.

Most all of my favorite TV/Movie stars are now gone.

I forgot about the Eveready alkaline battery commercials. I bet he did a dozen different ones.

Hey, Bill... Look up the battery ad on youtube when he was playing softball and you can see he ran like a 70 year old, even though he was in good shape.

Wild Wild West was "appointment TV" when I was young. (as was Land of the Giants.)

That slide was awful. Lucky he didn't break an ankle.
