Storyline

Decoys, misdirections and deceptions are the order of the day as Hannibal and the Kid get a taste of the other side of the robbery business when they are hired to transport $50,000. To add to the confusion, throw in a very naive, idealistic young woman as a love interest and possible thief. Written by David Foss

Trivia

Gene Roddenberry's story credit probably comes from his writing the episode of The Virginian (1962) that this show is adapted from. Roy Huggins produced both shows and (especially during the first season of "ASJ" when the scripts were written in a frantic midseason rush) grabbed stories from his earlier series and handed them off to teleplay writers (he almost always heavily revised the draft scripts).

deja vu - Alias The Virginian
29 June 2019 | by steffrosSee all my reviews

This episode is a a thinly reworked copy an episode of The Virginian called Run Away Home from 1963 staring Jeanine Riley and James Drury. Some of the dialogue is a direct duplicate. Both episodes have the same writers Howard Browne (teleplay) and Gene Roddenberry (story). Even the names of the secondary characters (the older couple) are only slightly changed John and Minerva Lewis to John and Minerva Lambert.

Jeanine and James do it better. Both have more charm and better chemistry than Ben Murphy and Heather Menzies.
