Pete Duel in ‘Alias Smith and Jones: The Great Shell Game’
The Great Shell Game (Season 1, Episode 6; Airdate: 2/18/71)
In a plot told in two separate stories that tie together for Heyes and Curry, each has an encounter with a lovely, refined, deceitful woman, Grace Turner (played by Diana Muldaur) for different purposes. Heyes impersonates a silver mine owner to entice the woman into his confidence game — in hopes of conning her out of $10,000 — with excellent results. It isn’t until the story of what happened to his partner and how it nearly shattered the outlaws’ chances at amnesty unfolds that we really understand the woman’s true colors. But is it possible the boys still find her appealing? Sam Jaffe guests as Soapy, a retired grifter, and Peter Breck (of Big Valley fame) also appears.
