Trivia

A building explodes at the beginning of the movie. It is the same "Madame Orr's House" from "Support Your Local Sheriff" (1969), but the explosion is seen from a different angle. See more »

Goofs

When the Devil's Hole gang is playing cards in the saloon, five of the six outlaws are visible - the sixth is tunneling beneath the street to get to the bank. Deputy Wilkins takes the guns from the outlaws at the table, yet when the entire gang asks for their guns back at after they end the game, all six are given gun belts. See more »

Smith and Jones Ride Again
7 June 2005 | by zagetheSee all my reviews

This series came about on the coat-tails of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and offers that same flavor of camaraderie and larceny in the old West. With just enough humor and angst throw in to make it a cult classic. I say cult because its not what you'd call a "straight" Western. It has drama, adventure, humor, and a bit of good ole fashion crime. It's well written and the two leads are perfect in their respective roles. I think the show would have lasted longer if not for the sudden death of one of its stars. No disrespect to Roger Smith but the chemistry was lost when Pete was replaced. Alas its not available on DVD (YET!) but you can find VHS eps on ebay and other sites. It's well worth a look!
