Overview

In an era when housewife, girlfriend, or secretary was about as good as it got for dramatic TV actresses, Honey West offered a sensual and glamorous female private eye in its title character, portrayed by Anne Francis. The character was introduced to television audiences in a 1965 Burke's Law episode, "Who Killed the Jackpot?" and true to form, Honey outwitted the suave detective played by Gene Barry. Producer Aaron Spelling spun the character off into a separate thirty-minute series that premiered in the fall of 1965. Honey West was the first dramatic TV show with a female star in an action-adventure role. In the show, Honey inherited her spying business from her late father, a top private eye. She also got his partner in the deal, rough and handsome Sam Bolt, played by John Ericson. There was a strong attraction between the partners, but Honey West's only true love was the thrill of adventure -- and her pet ocelot, Bruce. Television's first modern, independent, self-sufficient female crimebuster, Honey frequently engaged in fight scenes and shootouts. She was an expert at judo and held a black belt in karate. A la James Bond, she also owned an arsenal of weapons filled with "scientific" gadgets, including an exploding compact, a garter belt gas mask, teargas earrings, and a lipstick microphone. Although short-lived, this series broke the mold and paved the way for future female action heroines such as The Girl from U.N.C.L.E., The Bionic Woman, and Alias. All 30 episodes of the series aired on ABC during the 1965-66 season.

    Simply a great tv show from the sixties. Recall watching it as kid, enjoy it every bit as much today.

    Good plots, and great chemistry between Honey West and her partner. Honey's adversaries always seem to be surprised at her intelligence, strength, and her ability to physically overcome the larger male criminals. Throw in her aunt and her pet Bruce and you have a nice light hearted entertaining tv show from the sixties.
