    Trivia (3)

    • The theme song, written by Glen A. Larson, Gail Jensen, and David Sommerville, is performed by Lee Majors himself. Well, I'm not the kind to kiss and tell, But I've been seen with Farrah. I've never been with anything less than a nine, so fine. I've been on fire with Sally Field, gone fast with a girl named Bo. But somehow they just don't end up as mine... It's a death-defying life I lead, I'll take my chances. I've died for a living in the movies and tv. But the hardest thing I'll ever do is watch my leading ladies, Kiss some other guy while I'm bandaging my knee. I might fall from a tall building, I might roll a brand-new car, 'Cause I'm the unknown stuntman that made Redford such a star. I've never spent much time in school, but I taught ladies plenty. It's true I hire my body out for pay, hey hey! I've gotten burned over Cheryl Tiegs, blown up over Rachel Welch But when I wind up in the hay, it's only hay, hey hey! I might jump an open drawbridge, or Tarzan from a vine, 'Cause I'm the unknown stuntman, that makes Eastwood look so fine.

    • The photo of Colt with Robert Mitchum was from the movie The Agency, which starred Lee Majors and Mitchum.

    • Some clumsy editing makes it look as though Howie is suddenly twins. In the Golden Horseshoe, when Carnesco provokes a fight, Howie tries to intervene and is tossed aside. He lands on a table, which collapses to the floor. A moment later, Howie is on his feet and being grabbed by two other men. A moment after that, someone is pulling Howie up from the table on the floor where he landed, and Jody jumps in to defend him.
