    This book has never-before-seen photos, interviews with the former cast/crew for a behind-the-scenes look at the series, and a detailed guide for each episode which annotates script/cast/character changes. An excellent resource!

    I have at last (been waiting since Aug. 17th) received my copy of this book today (Oct 5th 2005). I am most impressed. There are plenty of pictures and little comments – some amusing some informative. The bloopers section is great, I’ll have to watch the series again – I didn’t spot them all before. Many congratulations to the authors, their hard work is really appreciated.

    I fell in love with Alias Smith & Jones as soon as I saw the pilot, and was so ‘addicted’ to it as a 17-year-old high school senior (Okay, addicted to Pete Duel!) that I actually quit my $1.60/hour salesgirl job in J. J. Newberry’s on Thursday nights so I could be home to watch it. I even audio-taped the episodes and listened to them as the cassette batteries died down.. :)

    I was a UConn freshman when my Mom woke me up on New Year’s Day 1972 to tell me that Pete Duel had killed himself, and I was blown away. What a waste of a extremely handsome and talented actor… The show was never the same or even remotely so after Roger Davis (whom I like very much, from Dark Shadows onward) replaced Duel, and soon enough it was all over.

    Thank God for reruns and the Western Channel! Now I have all Pete Duel episodes on VHS, and eagerly await the DVD: ARE YOU STUDIO TYPES LISTENING??? Unlike most westerns of the era, this one does not seem nearly as dated and has a graet supporting cast of actors with whom I grew up. It was fabulous to read the background on the series and the detailed synopsis of each epsiode and the associated trivia. The authors did a great job!!! Thank you for bringing back even more bittersweet memories.
