Alias Smith and Jones – western TV show.
Hannibal Heyes and Kid Curry, two of the most wanted outlaws in the history of the West, are popular “with everyone except the railroads and the banks”, since “in all the trains and banks they robbed, they never shot anyone”. They are offered an amnesty on condition that they stay out of trouble for a year and that they don’t tell anyone about it. With a view to keeping their noses clean they adopt the identities of Smith and Jones and use all of their ingenuity keeping out of the way of the law. Alias Smith and Jones is an American Western show originally airing on ABC from 1971 to 1973. It stars Pete Duel as Hannibal Heyes ( Roger Davis later as Hannibal Heyes ) and Ben Murphy as Jedediah “Kid” Curry, a pair of cousin outlaws trying to reform. The governor offers them a conditional amnesty, as he wants to keep the pact under wraps for political reasons. The condition is that they will still be wanted until
the governor can claim they have reformed and warrant clemency. Ben Murphy, Roger Davis, Pete Duel. There are 50 episodes of this 1971 – 1973 western series television show. Other Recurring characters besides the main characters.
Kyle Murtry (Dennis Fimple) and Wheat Carlson (Earl Holliman), members of the Devil’s Hole Gang, formerly led by Heyes and Curry;
Harry Briscoe (J.D. Cannon), a Bannerman detective who occasionally finds himself on the wrong side of the law.
Patrick “Big Mac” McCreedy (Burl Ives) and Señor Armendariz (Cesar Romero), two ranchers on opposite sides of the US-Mexico border/Rio Grande waging a feud over a valuable bust which represents land that had been owned by Armendariz until the river temporarily switched course, moving the border with it, allowing MacCreedy to sell the land. Heyes and Curry get stuck in the middle;
Clementine “Clem” Hale (Sally Field), an old friend who has no problem with blackmailing the reformed outlaws when necessary. Field had appeared in only one episode before Duel’s death, and she could not return due to being pregnant with her second child. Several scripts intended for her were rewritten to feature Georgette “George” Sinclair, who was played by Michele Lee. In the third season, Field did appear as Clem one last time; this time doing love scenes with former Flying Nun co-star Alejandro Rey.
Soapy Saunders (Sam Jaffe) and Silky O’Sullivan (Walter Brennan), both retired confidence men that the boys call on when in need of a large sum of cash and a good con to get them out of trouble.
Roger Davis had been the narrator of the show and now appears as a villain in Smiler with a Gun. Later he would replace Pete Duel as Hannibal Heyes. After watching Alias Smith and Jones for awhile you will notice it reminds you a lot of Maverick! That is because both were created by Roy Huggins although some sources will say Glen Larson created Alias Smith and Jones.
