Editorial Reviews

Alias Smith and Jones is an American Western series that originally aired on ABC from January 1971 to January 1973. It stars Pete Duel as Hannibal Heyes and Ben Murphy as Jedediah "Kid" Curry, outlaw cousins who are trying to reform. The governor offers them a conditional amnesty, aiming to keep the pact a secret. The "condition" is that they will still be wanted until it becomes politically advantageous for the governor to sign their pardon.

You're never too old to enjoy Alias Smith and Jones. I had watched all the episodes, except this pilot. When I found it on Amazon.com, I had to have it. Hilarious! Watch it over and over! Not a lot of Pete Duel's work is out on tape. Hopefully, the rest of this series will be available soon.

This was sort of a television version of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. It was far more light-hearted and endearing though. The actors had a great chemistry and even these 30+ years later the episodes hold up very well. I would recommend it for any one that likes light adventure/action, comedy, westerns. I write these comments in summer 2005 and noticed people have been begging to get this series on dvd/tape since at least 1999. Not a good sign. Come on ABC or whoever now owns the rights, everything else is being released to dvd how about this little gem!! If you're lucky enough to get the Encore channel they are currently running the series.

What an awesome video! Light, funny and full of good fun. Pete Duel and Ben Murphy really shine as the "two pretty good bad men".
A must see for the whole family. The best western/comedy ever made. Too bad we can't get the whole series in box sets. I'd buy them all! Universal, are you listening?

I have not seen this particular video but have another I purchased in an on-line auction and it was so wonderful to see a show I loved at age 16 again that I had not seen in 33 years!! I still remember when Peter Duel died - what a shock. I also did not remember that Ben Murphy was so handsome -I would put him up against any of today's TV and movie stars. I hear he had the edge in casting because of his resemblance to a young Paul Newman. I second the fellow from Britian who would like to see all 50 episodes released. This was a fun, quality show with humor and where noone was cut up or really even hurt. For those too young to know, it was loosely based on "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and very entertaining. Who do we contact about getting great shows like this and "The Young Rebels," from 1970, "The Second Hundred Years" and "Occasional Wife" from the same era released on video or DVD. Nostalgic baby boomers like me would eat them up!! Anybody listening??

There is a tv show that is in my brain, "Alais Smith and Jones" (1971-73). I did not get to watch it much, but when I did I always enjoyed it. I enjoyed the buddy friendship between Jones and Smith. Of course I was too young to understand the seriousness of the stories in the West. I thought that was how people lived somewhere else and here I lived in a brick house with a green lawn.

Ben Murphy is Thaddeus Jones/Jed "Kid" Curry. Peter Duel is Joshua Smith/Hannibal Hayes.

The tragic news of peter Duel is probably the first news report I remember. It scared me for a reason. When Peter Duel died, I thought it was just the character on tv and the footage on the news shook me up. In later episodes of Alais Smith and Jones, I kept waiting for Peter Duel to return, but of course now I know why.

Peter Duel was an actor on the rise. The tv show was a hit. However, Peter Duel was suffering depression and had a serious alcohol problem. He committed suicide with a gun on New Years Eve, December 31, 1971.

In 1972, they found a replacement by hiring Roger Davis. The series continued until 1973.

This video is the tv-movie that started it all. it starts with a cute story of how, in the west, it is getting harder for Smith and Jones to crack a safe. Things are improving in security. They try to dynamite a safe, but that foils. Then Alias (Peter Duel) tries to crack the code of the safe. He is a pro at it, well until now. Then they steal the safe and jump it off a cliff. It fell all right, but it didn't open.

Will these bad guys ever turn good for amnesty? Jeanette Nolan tries to help them.

Earl Holliman plays "Wheat". Also in the cast: Forrest Tucker, Susan Saint James and James Drury.

While I've seen all the Alias Smith and Jonesd shows, I'd never seen the pilot episode and I am SO glad I got it. I paid $... Canadian - and it was worth every penny! It was fantastic - it set up the whole opening, explained the story right from the beginning, answered questions I'd wondered about - it was so much fun! I was grinning ear to ear and thoroughly engertained. It's something I could watch over and over and not get tired of. I love Pete Duel and he shines in this video. I love Ben Murphy and he was fabulous too. The chemistry between these 2 actors is apparent. I'd love to have the rest of the show on video too - Universal, come on!

...And good, clean fun. A must-have for fans of the series. My favorite series now and more years back than I care to remember.
To TPTB: PLEASE release the entire series on VHS or, better still, DVD!

Hi Folks! I sure do miss this western! It was, in my opinion, the most unusual western ever on tv, because there really was very little violence. Peter Duel was really great as Hannibal Heyes, and he happens to be one of entertainer Natalia Melony's favorite actors, I hear! I would like to see more of Alias Smith and Jones shows become widely available. And I would also like to see more of Peter Duel's work, in general. I think anyone would enjoy this video, and I'm sure they will enjoy it many times over. It was a very cleverly written series, and sadly, we don't have many of those around today, now do we? :) Surely you will be happy that you added this video tape to your collection. Bill Diehl
