      Alias Smith and Jones: The Girl in Boxcar #3 has some drama and poignancy to it, and while I enjoy it, it also is the first show that has Hannibal Heyes (Pete Duel) and Kid Curry (Ben Murphy) apart for much of the time. This serves to allow the actors to stretch a little and get some quality screen time, but it’s always been my belief that in buddy shows, such as this series is, that the buddies do best

      when together and not apart. The good thing is that they are together in the beginning and the end, so that’s something.

      Basically, the two outlaws have taken a job to transport $50,000 to another location. Since they believe they would be followed, they decide to separate, with one of them throwing the followers off the track while the other escapes with the loot.

      While Duel gets a couple of quick moments later on, the show focuses mostly on Murphy’s character ...


      • and his alias of Thaddeus Jones. As he goes on his way, he ends up involved with a young woman, Annabelle, who wants to join her father, a man she believes is a big wig in a western town.

        What happens from here on out is the portion of the story that has some poignancy to it. It’s not just Annabelle’s story and its ultimate resolute that tugs on heartstrings, but so does the story of the couple who gives

        them shelter one night. Royal Dano and Claudia Bryar are very good as the Lamberts who have a sad secret.

        Annabelle is played convincing by Heather Menzies. She’s best known for being one of the Von Trapp children in the hit musical, The Sound of Music, as well as being the widow of Robert Urich.

        Alias Smith and Jones: The Girl in Boxcar #3 is a good show, though not a big favorite because of the aforementioned separation of the stars.
