The Gas Masks:
 The Gas Masks

Seen briefly in the two-part episode, “Beautiful Dreamer”. The gas masks provided our heroes protection against the knockout gas emitted from their Gas Guns or The Black Beauty. These masks were intended for use each time gas was utilized on screen, but this idea was promptly abandoned. Besides proving cumbersome for the actors to wear under their face masks, the apparatuses also covered their mouths... thus obscuring the dialogue (and necessitating postproduction voice-overs). Despite these drawbacks, Van Williams indicates the short-lived gas masks were well made and comfortable, something that's unusual for a TV prop.
