This is an additional one of the videos I did for fun. Clips are from various episodes of ‘Alias Smith And Jones’ of Kid Curry and Hannibel Heyes on the run. The song is ‘Fox On The Run’ sung by Sweet.
While we have not watched all 10 DVDs, the ones we have watched have been pleasant viewing. The quality is very acceptable, given this was a TV series, not a movie.
The plots vary from engaging to those which jump the shark. But hey, it’s all good. Beats the garbage on TV today, and it’s family safe.

We need more westerns–how about making available The Young Riders (circa 1989) with Teaspoon and the boys…Takes yer back to the history of the west. Why are we living in such a violent age –is it anything to do with all these macho hereos who polish off 25 people, instead of Westerns where you get a more accurate picture?
I’m a little surprised to see other people have rated the video quality on the complete series to be good. I’ve watched the first 5 episodes and find the video quality to be horrible. Most DVDs I watch on my upconverting blu-ray player look pretty good, or at least acceptable. These episodes look grainy. It looks like they are doing a weird frame rate. When people talk, there lips appear to be blurring. Almost like a ghosting effect. I noticed the same thing on a dark train sequence where the wood appeared to be blurring (Episode 5, The girl in Boxcar #3). I’ve never had an issue with anything else, so I completely believe its the DVD mastering. I notice the mps is low compared to other full frame DVDs of series I own. That said, this is a great series which I used to watch years ago and always enjoyed. 5 stars for great show, 1 star for the video quality.
i also am in love with a lot of the old tv stars; clint walker; james garner; jack kelly; roger moore;robert horton; robert fuller; steve mcQueen; richard boone(as paladin);ty hardin-(as bronco layne);chuck connors (as the rifleman);clint eastwood (as rowdy yates-on rawhide); eric fleming-as trail boss gil favor on rawhide;peter brown-of lawman and john russell-lead actor in lawman. these guys were the matinee idols on tv-in the 50s-they make me swoon!
I am in love with a lot of stars from back then. They were classics.
Pete Duel was a FOX alright! Foxiest Man Ever!!!! OMG! He was sooooo Handsome and Sexy!!! I am inlove with this man. Today’s stars cannot hold a candle to Pete!
