70s shirtless alias smith and jones

the male buddy format, one blonde, one dark, was a standard of 70s TV. But shirtless scenes between these handsome leading men were few and far between. Although whole movie genres and sub-cultures had grown up around the shirtless male hero, TV had yet to realise the appeal of the shirtless male. Here’s a rare example, from 1971′s Alias Smith and Jones, in which we see the Ben Murphy shirtless while shaving. Although he’s a great-looking guy, he’s not the macho athletic type who would come to dominate shirtless TV. It would be another 10 years before TV discovered the six-pack.

Acrylic Furniture by Charles Hollis Jones – We Have The Hots for Hollis

Acrylic Furniture by Charles Hollis Jones – We Have The Hots for Hollis

 

When American artist and furniture designer Charles Hollis Jones began working with acrylic and Lucite back in the 1960s, these materials had never before been taken seriously as fodder for fine art and furniture. But the pioneer designer had something up his sleeve. He was just 16 in 1961 when he founded CHJ Designs and began selling his work to department stores. Two years later, he moved to Los Angeles from his native Indiana and began creating bespoke furniture in just these materials for famous LA showrooms such as Hudson-Rissman. Soon enough he began to attract attention from stars like Johnny Carson, Frank Sinatra, and Lucille Ball, who all commissioned custom pieces for their homes. In the ‘70s, Hollis Jones launched the Edison Lamp, the steel and Lucite lantern housing a simple Edison bulb that won him the California Design 11 Competition. He went on to create hundreds of designs in acrylic, from table lighters and candlesticks to four-poster beds and spiral staircases.

Now 65 years old, Hollis Jones is still living and designing in LA and this year marks the 50th anniversary of his design studio. His acrylic and metal coffee tables, side tables, chairs, and light fixtures have become iconic to such an extent that, if you don’t know his name, you probably still recognize his work. Last month, at Chryssanthou Art & Design in West Hollywood, California, Hollis Jones had a retrospective and also introduced his new “O” line series in shapes inspired by the circle, whose geometric perfection asserts itself in motifs sculpted into polished nickel handles and runners. Among the collection’s highlights, the “O” Rocker is constructed of transparent light reflecting acrylic sandwiched between polished nickel frames. Hollis Jones actually embedded a Presidential Seal in one of the rockers and gifted it to President Obama. Is Jones experiencing a renaissance? With the promotion of the new series at Chryssanthou and the Obama stunt, he certainly is positioning himself for attention.

And you can’t fight him on it. Especially in the dead of summer heat, Hollis Jones’s work is refreshingly light and airy, with forms that seem to float delicately between gleaming silver runners and prismatic edges. Offered by VandM.com dealer Material Environment in LA, the Ziggurat side table is an original production from the ‘70s and features one of the designer’s signature zigzag profiles.

Also in LA, dealer Cain Modern brings us several key HJ pieces. A trio of custom Waterfall barstools date to 1970 and each swivel 360 degrees with comfortable foot rests. The dealer recommends reupholstering, but otherwise the 35 ½-inch-high, 16-inch-wide, and 21-inch-deep stools are in excellent condition. From the designer’s Metric collection, a dining table in Lucite and brass sports a glass rectangular top that Cain Modern is happy to switch out for a larger surface if desired. Characteristic of the Metric series, the metal and acrylic are attached without revealing any hardware, a signature Hollis Jones detail. Two storage devices find shape in an acrylic magazine rack with chrome fittings and a sleek vintage shelf of glued, one-inch-thick Lucite panels.

Alias Smith and Jones (1971) – TV Intro

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.
