RIP Robert Conrad

MALIBU, Calif.–Robert Conrad, the rugged, contentious actor who starred in the hugely popular 1960s television series “Hawaiian Eye” and “The Wild, Wild West,” died here Feb. 8 from heart failure. He was 84.

MSTies will recall that he was mentioned in a host segment in episode 515- THE WILD WILD WORLD OF BATWOMAN.

The L.A. Times has the story

Thanks to “Sitting Duck” for the heads up.

    RIP Robert. “The Wild Wild West” was my favorite show in the mid 60’s. I have recordings of all the episodes.

    I was absolutely fascinated with The Wild Wild West reruns at 3 PM daily back in my High School days while Watergate was going on. Such color and comic violence- adventure and triumph. Jim and Artie.

    Bummer. I have seen select episodes of Wild Wild West but the first role I saw him in was Officer Hummell in Jingle All the Way.

    Loved him in “The Wild Wild West” but I think my favorite TV role of his was as a murderous fitness trainer in an episode of “Columbo.” Watching his smarmy character try to get Lt. Columbo to exercise, drink weird health foods, and quit smoking, all while thinking he was outsmarting the detective, was priceless.
