      Alias Smith and Jones: Never Trust an Honest Man is not one of my big favorites, though I am happy that our two adorable ex-outlaws, Hannibal Heyes (Pete Duel) and Kid Curry (Ben Murphy), are together again, as it should be. The main thrust is that while traveling on the train and being forced to play poker, they accidentally leave with the wrong piece of luggage. This wrong piece ends up having all kinds of valuable jewelry inside.

      Heyes and


      Curry return the jewels, but the story isn’t over yet when the jewels are discovered to be fake. That leaves our two Kansas cousins confused and having to solve a mystery, and stay alive at the same time.

      Richard Anderson, one of those actors who has appeared on every TV show of the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s known to mankind, appears in Never Trust an Honest Man as the James Quirt. Is he a good guy or a bad guy?


      • You’ll have to watch to find out. Certainly, Anderson has played everything there is to play in his career, and you just never know until you tune in what his role is in any given show.

        Robert Donner, who had a great career as a character actor and then as a director, plays Preacher. He’s fun and entertaining in his short bit in this episode.

        Severn Darden actually plays two roles in this show, which is unusual. I always wonder

        how many people realize that he did double duty. He really was superb in both portrayals.

        Rounding out this supporting cast are Marj Dusay, Burt Mustin, and Ford Rainey, so it really is a top notch cast. They all work together well. Even so, for some reason, this show doesn’t resonate within me. It might be that I don’t like the ending that well. I’m not sure. However, it has its moments and still brings smiles and laughs.
