This book has never-before-seen photos, interviews with the former cast/crew for a behind-the-scenes look at the series, and a detailed guide for each episode which annotates script/cast/character changes. An excellent resource!

I have at last (been waiting since Aug. 17th) received my copy of this book today (Oct 5th 2005). I am most impressed. There are plenty of pictures and little comments - some amusing some informative. The bloopers section is great, I'll have to watch the series again - I didn't spot them all before. Many congratulations to the authors, their hard work is really appreciated.

I fell in love with Alias Smith & Jones as soon as I saw the pilot, and was so 'addicted' to it as a 17-year-old high school senior (Okay, addicted to Pete Duel!) that I actually quit my $1.60/hour salesgirl job in J. J. Newberry's on Thursday nights so I could be home to watch it. I even audio-taped the episodes and listened to them as the cassette batteries died down.. :)

I was a UConn freshman when my Mom woke me up on New Year's Day 1972 to tell me that Pete Duel had killed himself, and I was blown away. What a waste of a extremely handsome and talented actor... The show was never the same or even remotely so after Roger Davis (whom I like very much, from Dark Shadows onward) replaced Duel, and soon enough it was all over.

Thank God for reruns and the Western Channel! Now I have all Pete Duel episodes on VHS, and eagerly await the DVD: ARE YOU STUDIO TYPES LISTENING??? Unlike most westerns of the era, this one does not seem nearly as dated and has a graet supporting cast of actors with whom I grew up. It was fabulous to read the background on the series and the detailed synopsis of each epsiode and the associated trivia. The authors did a great job!!! Thank you for bringing back even more bittersweet memories.

For anyone who has taken the Universal Studios tour in Hollywood, they're sure to remember passing through the vast backlot and seeing the very western sets that brought "Alias Smith & Jones" to life. Those same sets that are also featured in Sandra K. Sagala and JoAnne M. Bagwell's tribute book to the show that originally aired on ABC-TV between 1971-73. Rival and current studio owners NBC-Universal, a mere division of General Electric, have announced the wholesale development of the whole backlot over the next seven years. A massive multi-billion dollar remake with luxury condos, hotels and a bigger citywalk attraction. The "Smith & Jones" western set, as seen in hundreds of over movies and TV shows, will be the final western set in Hollywood to bite the dust. For years I worked on the Universal lot and just like other fans of the show, I came to know all the sets, that is REALLY know all the sets -the various western streets, the mexican village and hacienda, the corrals and barns, backlot lakes and the wilderness area where Hannibal Heyes and Kid Curry would ride through each week. It was all there, right by the Hollywood freeway right in the heart of Los Angeles.

Having this in-depth reference and episode guide, written by two really DEDICATED fans, together with the upcoming DVD release of the show, should satisfy the western urge in any TV-oater fan. The pictures could be printed better, specially since they're soon become even more precious and sought after. Even our charming outlaw duo couldn't outdraw the coming bulldozers!

"Alias Smith & Jones: The Story of Two Pretty Good Bad Men" is a superb history of the ABC-TV western that starred Pete Duel and Ben Murphy. This is not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill fan book with glossy, slick pages, huge pictures, and about as much text as you might find on a skeleton. Instead, the authors provided an extremely detailed look of the show with in-depth interviews of all the principal actors, producers, and editors. At 500 pages in length, this book is the best thing that you will ever see about this obscure television western that was created by "Battlestar Galactia" producer Glen A. Larson and produced by the legendary Roy Huggins whose credits as a tv producer included "Maverick," "The Fugitive," "Run for Your Life," "Toma," "Cheyenne," and "Baretta." Anybody who is interested in how television shows are produced should acquire a copy of this marvelously written, substantial history that includes trivia about the show and its stars. The ladies that wrote this book are experts on their subject matter and it shows in the time and attention to detail here with more than you could ever imagine about one of TV's last westerns. As an assistant professor of communication, I can tell you that I didn't expect a lot from this book until I bought it on the recommendation of one of the "Alias Smith & Jones" producers and I consider it the seminal text about the show. If you ever aspire to write a fan book about your favorite TV show, "Alias Smith & Jones: The Story of Two Pretty Good Bad Men" is an outstanding template. Moreover, if you are a fan of the "Alias Smith & Jones" prepared to have your knowledge of this series enhanced ten-thousand times over. I cannot say nearly enough good things about this wonderful book. Buy it!
