Yes,apparently the pilot for a TV series(!) that didn't get picked up. Most sites say 60 minutes, but Amazon lists the DVD timing as an hour and a half. Curious. Something about it here:

All agree it wasn't aired till 1968,but I would have sworn I saw it on TV before Star Trek started--I certainly would have recognized Shatner and Adam West,which I don't remember doing. It may have gotten an airing that didn't get recorded,probably not an unusual thing back then. Being a TV pilot explains why I could never find it listed in movies books.
