The Barbary Coast

doug director jack heyes

(ABC, 5/4/1975, 120 mins). A government undercover agent and the dashing owner of a boomtown San Francisco casino team up to exposé an elaborate extortion plot devised by a Confederate Army officer in this pilot for the short-lived (late 1975) series that bore a striking resemblance to the fondly remembered “Wild, Wild West.” William Shatner repeated his role of Cable (along with his makeup trunk of exotic disguises), Doug McClure took over the part of Conover from Dennis Cole, and Richard Kiel continued as the casino’s giant bouncer. For the TV movie, art director Jack DeShields and set decorator Reg Allen received Emmy Award nominations.
