Alias Smith and Jones

The Man Who Broke the Bank at Red Gap - S2-E17

Factual error: An egotistical, prissy and dishonest lawyer like Mr. Fletcher wouldn't make the mistake of allowing his name to be misspelled on his office door. It reads "Winfred Fletcher." His first name, as it's pronounced throughout the episode, is "Winford."

Dreadful Sorry, Clementine - S2-E10

Factual error: Heyes burns the photo - but he shouldn't have been able to. In the 1880s, it should be printed on tin and not on paper.

The Posse That Wouldn't Quit - S2-E5

Factual error: Heyes gives Bridget a glowing and accurate description of Denver's Brown Palace Hotel - a landmark that wasn't built until 1892, ten years after the setting here.

Smiler with a Gun - S2-E4

Factual error: Heyes and Curry spend months at the mine without any razors or knives. Their beards grow out - but their hair doesn't get any longer.

Which Way to the OK Corral? - S2-E20

Factual error: Heyes and Curry meet Doc Holliday and Marshall Wyatt Earp in Tombstone. Wyatt, however, was never a marshall in Tombstone, though his brother Virgil was. Wyatt and Doc Holliday both left Tombstone permanently shortly after the OK Corral shootout in 1881, so wouldn't even have been there when Heyes and Curry arrived in 1883. (The year's established by Heyes reading Twain's book published in that year).

The Men That Corrupted Hadleyburg - S2-E18

Factual error: Heyes plays blackjack with cash instead of chips. When he bets the limit of $1000, he pushes two small stacks of coins toward the dealer. A thousand dollars in coins would have made a substantially larger stack than this. Even if they were $20 gold pieces (which they don't appear to be) the two piles would have to be comprised of 25 coins each, which they are not.

The Day They Hanged Kid Curry (90 min.) - S2-E1

Factual error: Wheat refers to the hanging of real-life outlaw Black Jack Ketchum. But Ketchum was executed in 1901. Smith & Jones is set in the 1880s.

Don't Get Mad, Get Even - S2-E21

Factual error: A grumpy Heyes tells Georgette and Curry that he's been sleeping in a stable loft for two days without a bath or a shave. But he's completely clean-shaven: not even a hint of stubble showing.

00:15:00

Jean G

The Men That Corrupted Hadleyburg - S2-E18

Factual error: Heyes and Curry are reading the Denver Post in the beginning scene, but the Denver Post was not published under that name until 1901, nor published under its earlier name, The Evening Post, until 1893.

Trivia

The stiff-necked, humorless Sheriff Tankersley was a nose-thumbing parody of a real (and really unpopular) person. William Tankersley was a notoriously prissy network censor who was infamous at the time for trying (unsuccessfully) to stifle the naughty bits on All in the Family.
