Nice period piece.
6 May 2005 | by PFJOHN1See all my reviews

Picked up this hard to find TV movie on an ebay auction, Conrad plays hard edged private eye out to find out who "iced" his friend. Conrad does some post "Wild Wild West" boxing and 4 on 1 fighting with his usual flair, story moves along fine and Shelley Winters makes an appearance. Conrad has a few scenes where he dons disguises, like Ross Martin did as his partner in "Wild Wild West", not a bad way to spend 90 minutes. I understand that this was a pilot for a TV series that did not "sell", is a shame because the "Nick Carter" character had a lot of possibilities that could have been explored in a role Robert Conrad was well cast to play. Guest cast was a good one and watch the unusual turn by Pernell Roberts. Recommended.
