Alias Smith and Jones – western TV show
Hannibal Heyes and Kid Curry, two of the most wanted outlaws in the history of the West, are popular “with everyone except the railroads and the banks”, since “in all the trains and banks they robbed, they never shot anyone”. They are offered an amnesty on condition that they stay out of trouble for a year and that they don’t tell anyone about it. With a view to keeping their noses clean they adopt the identities of Smith and Jones and use all of their ingenuity keeping out of the way of the law.
Alias Smith and Jones is an American Western show originally airing on ABC from 1971 to 1973. It stars Pete Duel as Hannibal Heyes ( Roger Davis later as Hannibal Heyes ) and Ben Murphy as Jedediah “Kid” Curry, a pair of cousin outlaws trying to reform. The governor offers them a conditional amnesty, as he wants to keep the pact under wraps for political reasons. The condition is that they will still be wanted until the governor can claim they have reformed and warrant clemency.
