The ‘SMITH’ Shows of 1970’s TV

The What? Yes, 1970’s television fare included at least 2 shows with “Smith’ in the title. They’re both worth remembering for completely different reasons–having nothing to do with the titles! Author and TV historian Herbie J Pilato points us to what may be silver screen star Henry Fonda’s only effort at a TV series and why ‘The Smith Family” failed. Then he turns to a relatively short-lived but successful series starring two relative unknowns: “Alias Smith & Jones” It’s an interesting look into the history and workings of television and a fun trip down memory lane for those of the Act 2 Generation™!
