Although Robert Conrad made a few "B" movies in the late 1950s and 1960s, his fame comes primarily from television, a medium which has been highly successful for the star of Hawaiian Eye and The Wild, Wild West.
The role of Jim West in The Wild, Wild West wasn't easy for Robert Conrad to nail down. Originally, Rory Calhoun was to portray Jim West. Also, John Derek auditioned. Wild, Wild West---Conrad usually did his own stunts, including many that carried considerable risk. The W3 show was still carrying a high (33 percent share) rating during its last season, but CBS ended it as a result of their corporate president's pledge to Congress to cut down on TV violence
Was injured several times while on the set of WWW; The Night of the Fugitives during the W3's third season, Robert Conrad slipped while performing a stunt off a chandelier and fell head first onto the concrete floor 12 feet below. Miraculously he was able to stagger to his feet before being transported to the hospital. The injury was reported as a high-temporal concussion marked by a six-inch lineal skull fracture. Production was halted for 12 weeks as a result
In 1978, Conrad was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance on Baa Baa Black Sheep
