Available on DVD as a double feature for the very first time: 2 classic Wild Wild West movies! In "Wild, Wild West Revisited," the intrepid team of 19th century government underground intelligence agents (made famous on the 1965-69 television series) are brought out of retirement to discover whether clone-like imposters may have been substituted for the crowned heads of Britain, Spain, Russia and U.S. President Cleveland. Then, in "More Wild, Wild West," secret agents James West (Robert Conrad) and Artemus Gordon (Ross Martin) foil a mad professor (Jonathan Winters) in the Old West.
In 2008, CBS/Paramount released The Wild, Wild West - The Complete TV Series
on DVD, a 27-disc set in collectible packaging which included a disc full of bonus material, including the 1979 reunion telefilm "The Wild Wild West Revisited
," and the 1980 reunion telefilm, "More Wild Wild West
." Those TV movies were NOT included with the studio's 2016 "unlimited" re-release of The Wild, Wild West - The Complete Series
, a 36-DVD set in "shelf-friendly" packaging, that didn't contain the disc of extras...and so The Wild Wild West Revisited
and More Wild Wild West
weren't part of that offering.
If you're one of the fans of this show who doesn't have these telefilms, then now you're in luck! CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution have announced that these feature-length reunion TV movie, never before released separately on DVD from the rest of the series, will be available on their own at last! On June 13th
CBS/Paramount will put in stores The Wild, Wild West - Double Feature: The Wild Wild West Revisited & More Wild Wild West
as a single-disc title.
Besides the stars mentioned in the description quoted above, also look for appearances in these by musician/actor Harry Morgan (M*A*S*H, Dragnet
), René Auberjonois (Benson, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
), Paul Williams (Smokey and the Bandit, Battle For the Planet of the Apes
), Victor Buono (Man From Atlantis, Batman
), Avery Schreiber (My Mother the Car, Top Cat and the Beverly Hills Cats
), Liz Torres (Gilmore Girls, The John Larroquette Show
), and more! Pricing hasn't been made available yet, but here's a look at the packaging's artwork:
We noticed that on the original package art posted yesterday, the titles of the individual telefilms were in reverse order from the way they were broadcast: the 1980 reunion telefilm was listed first (on both the front and the spine of the box), and the 1979 reunion telefilm was listed second. We passed that on to the studio, and they've quickly both confirmed that they'll be in the correct order on the DVD itself, and also revised the package art so that these are now shown on the box in proper airdate order.
