Van Cleef only in cameo
31 August 2016 | by crogers-2See all my reviews

While the rest of the previous review is accurate, Lee Van Cleef is only very briefly in this episode as a guy in a bar. Alan Young's co- star in the episode is Dan Haggerty (Haggerty appeared in many episodes of Death Valley Days).

I've been working restoring the entire series for the past few years. There are many great cameos from future stars in the series. Most of the original Star Trek cast have been in episodes (George Takei, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley), a very young Clint Eastwood and Nick Nolte, Gilligan Island's Russell Johnson - so many more.

If you get Starz, be sure to check out the series! They've been playing our restored episodes!
