Robert Conrad, old-time star of The Wild, Wild West, pauses for photographers at a Writers Guild Foundation honoring TV producer Stephen J. Cannell. This was at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills, California on March 30, 2006. If you're thinking Robert Conrad looks a little off-kilter, you're right: he was partially paralyzed after he had an accident while driving drunk in 2003. More details on that can be found here. Robert Conrad was born on March 1, 1935, so he had just turned 71 when this photo was taken.
