Before Alias Smith and Jones!
18 January 2015 | by eposey-9-970909See all my reviews

This was made before the hit and by the same people who made the hit show Alias Smith and Jones which starred Peter Duel and Roger Davis. It has the same kind of writing, directing, themes and even the same actors, props and scenes. Why this wasn't picked up as a series is another TV mystery because it is as good as Smith and Jones. It is different as Duel plays a con man after some stolen money and Davis is a semi-honest nice guy who finds the money and intends to return it but gets mixed up with Duel and the talented funny gorgeous Joan Hackett. For any fan of Smith and Jones this is a must see. I have been a Smith and Jones fan since I was 9 and watched it in it's original run and reruns and now on DVD. I was reading about the show when I came across this movie and watched in online. It is really good and would like on DVD but it's never been released as I can find. But again if you are a fan of Smith and Jones or Peter Duel and Roger Davis see this.
