Legend is a story about the 1870's West, a boozing dime novelist (Richard Dean Anderson) assumes the identity of his books' hero, Nicodemus Legend. In the opener, Legend is assisted by Professor Janos Christoff Bartok, (John de Lancie) the eccentric European scientist and inventor who is an admirer of Ernest Pratt's clever Western Tales.

Pratt (Anderson) is concerned by the awkward situation and by Bartok's persistent efforts to convince him that he must take on Legend's identity. Bartok tells Pratt ,"Your celebrity has the power to give our enemies pause. My science can increase that reputation. And together we will create the real Legend"

This is a real tongue in cheek comedy of the old West. John does a marvelous job trying to keep Ernest Pratt from being overcome by his bad side of gambling, womanizing and hard drinking.

This is one of John's favorite roles. He put a lot into this character. Watch your cable TV guide for Legend.
