One of the most popular Western series of the 1970s, 'Alias Smith & Jones' aired on ABC for 3 years. In the tradition of the hit movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Alias Smith & Jones follows the exploits of former Devil's Hole Gang leaders Kid Curry and Hannibal Heyes (alias Smith and Jones), a pair of successful and popular outlaws trying to go straight after a lifetime of mostly non-violent banditry.
Starring Ben Murphy and Pete Duel as the two charming rogues, the series features a strong cast of recurring characters, including Burl Ives and Walter Brennan, as well as an outstanding roster of guest stars including Rory Calhoun, Jack Cassidy, Neville Brand, Anne Archer, Chill Wills, Slim Pickens and John Russell, many of whom made multiple appearances on the show.
Narrator Roger Davis took on the role of Hannibal Heyes, following the untimely and unfortunate death of Pete Duel during the second season.
Almost a month ago we reported that Timeless Media Group (TMG) had licensed the rights to release Alias Smith and Jones - Seasons 2 and 3 on DVD, and planned to put it out on June 8th. We've got great info for fans of this show, however: TMG has been able to move the release up! The new street date is April 13th. Also, this 6-disc set (1765 minutes) will cost $49.98 SRP...twenty dollars less of a list price than previously reported. Plus you get a rather nice discount if you lock in your copy now, using the Amazon button link below. Isn't that great news? And if that hasn't made your day yet, then how about getting your very first look at the package art!
