Excellent series, and it hasn't aged
22 April 2004 | by RussianPantyHogSee all my reviews

The story of Hannibal Hayes and Kid Curry, 2 fictional outlaws who robbed many banks and trains but, famously, never actually hurt anyone. They're finally captured, but offered an amnesty if they can.... No, I'm not giving the plot away to anyone who hasn't seen it. Let's just say the "amnesty" has quite a few strings attached to it. I watched this series as a kid in the early 70s and really enjoyed it. Every episode. Quality scripts, well directed and a real chemistry between the 2 stars, Pete Duel (Hayes) and ben Murphy (Curry). I never much liked many other "western" tv shows (The Virginian etc) but Alias Smith & Jones always kept me glued to the tv. I guess it was the good humour of the show, and that the action had no real violence. I remember how sad I was in December '71 when we heard Pete Duel had taken his own life. I couldn't understand how someone so handsome and successful could be unhappy; still can't. Anyway. I haven't seen the show for over 30 years but now it's being shown again on British Channel 5. It hasn't "aged" at all and I'm glad to see a whole new audience is seeing it, as well as oldies like me who saw it the first time round.
