Alias Smith & Jones (western, starring Ben Murphy and Peter Duel)

     (ABC Primetime, 1971 - 1973)

     [the fanciful premise of this series cast two outlaws similar
      in personality to those in the film "Butch Cassidy and the
      Sundance Kid"; however in this TV series the outlaws decide
      to "go straight" for a year and try to earn amnesty by doing
      good deeds under assumed names -- alias "Smith" and "Jones";

      Peter Duel spelled his last name "Deuel" when he was on the
      series "Love On A Rooftop";

      a very bizarre occurrence marred what was becoming a hit show,
      when co-star Peter Duel watched an episode of the series, and
      then shot himself to death in 1972; at that point, his
      character was re-cast with actor Roger Davis, but the audience
      didn't buy the new cast]
