PostASJ Trivia Quiz by Ghislaine Emrys


I have learned a great deal about late nineteenth century American history by delving further into that time period as a result of watching Alias Smith and Jones. The historical facts and features present in so many episodes, although problematic in some aspects, piqued my interest and have afforded me many hours of enjoyable research surfing the web for additional information. It is one of the reasons I enjoy the show so much. Of course, another reason is because the acting is wonderful! In fact, I admire the craft that went into producing the entire show. After watching each episode numerous times, I now find myself appreciating the little details as much as the actors and the plots.

My 40th anniversary tribute takes the form of a trivia quiz, so if you think you know a lot about Alias Smith and Jones, prove it by answering the questions below about the show! There is one question for each episode and the answers can be accessed by clicking on a link at the bottom of this page. For each correct response, give yourself a point and then click the link at the bottom of the Answers page to find out what you’ve won.

Each numbered answer corresponds to the question on the previous page. For each correct response, reward yourself with one point. Calculate the total number of points (remember: There’s a formula for everything!) and then click on the link at the bottom of this page to see what you have won. Click on the links included with many answers for additional information.

1) 7:15am, “first thing in the morning”

2) $50.00/month each; according to one website (, that amount is equal to $1097.65 in 2009 US dollars

3) Heyes to Big Mac, in the saloon when he and Curry are trying to get a drink

4) Henry Maxwell Jenkins was one and the other man was unnamed

5) No, it was the third boxcar behind the engine car of the train

6) Twelve; she tells Heyes she went there a year ago after her husband died

7) Take a Look Around, by David Shire and Tim Maltby, and sung by Tim Morgon

8) Twenty-one

9) Ten percent or two thousand dollars

10 ) Boston; this is what the city looked like in 1880:

11) $100,000 in real money, not Confederate play money; for images and information about Confederate currency, visit this website:

12) Two; first he turns it up when he asks her a question, then he turns it down when he says, “It’s no trouble at all.”

13) Heyes says it to Blanche

14) Never Trust an Honest Man

15) About four hours, playing the guitar and singing ballads such as The Streets of Laredo to him

16) Finesse, according to Kyle

17) Holding the President for ransom and blowing up the Denver Mint; for more about the Denver Mint, visit the official website:

18) Heyes’ bail was $8.12 and Curry’s was $12.21

19) Stockton, on the 4th of July was where they all met and the gold mine was in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains across the desert; interestingly, Google Maps only lists one Stockton, in California, yet the Sangre de Cristo Mountains are located in Colorado and New Mexico; here’s a link:

20) According to Kid, thirteen

21) Chapter 31 in Life on the Mississippi, by that fella with an alias who wasn’t wanted for anything, Mark Twain; here’s a link to an online version of the chapter (scroll down about halfway to see the relevant section about fingerprints):

22) Twenty cents; nowadays, ground buffalo meat costs about $7.99/pound

23) Kid says it to Heyes when Heyes uses the rubber tube on him to prove Curry didn’t steal their money; read about the history of the stethoscope here:

24) Curry had sixteen and Heyes had seventeen

25) Eight dollars an acre

26) Thirty-eight; this flag was used from 1877 – 1890 but the flag used in the episode is not the same design as that of the real historical American flag of the same period; here’s a link to a picture of the real one:

27) Carbondale

28) At the beginning of Everything Else You Can Steal, Curry says this to Heyes as the boys are letting their horses have a drink and he decides that being locked up would mean that for twenty years he wouldn’t have to climb into a saddle and ride a horse

29) Yuma, Arizona; here’s information about the history of the city:

30) “That’s where the money was kept.” Attributed to Willie Sutton, notorious bank robber, it is questionable as to whether he actually said that, although this online biography maintains that he did:

31) Four hundred dollars apiece

32) He’s referring to a scheme that will extricate him and Kid from Chester B. Powers and he makes the remark to Kid as they ride in a train boxcar

33) A favor—to find out what happened to the Tapscotts

34) Heyes had a mustache that he referred to as a soup-strainer, but he shaved it off because he said it looked sinister

36) Georgette “George” Sinclair

37) She says, “It was very exciting kissing you.”

39) Heyes is bending over Kid’s body after Kid fell from the train and Heyes thinks Kid is dead

40) Five seconds to reload and up to one thousand yards; for a short history on the Sharps rifle and its impact, read this article:

41) On a pedestal directly opposite the main entrance of the hacienda

42) Three months, according to Heyes when he’s proposing the deal to the leader of the Denver citizens group who’s attempting to capture Heyes and Curry

43) Simple Gifts; watch a short video about the song and the Shakers here:

44) According to the deputy sheriffs, “No weapon, concealed or otherwise, can be carried in any town, city, or village,” which is interesting because Tombstone, Arizona, had the same town ordinance when the Earps were the law there

45) Boston, just like Julia Finney; his other lady friends, Grace Turner and Leslie O’Hara, were from Philadelphia

46) Governor Baxter said it was in the Little Big Horns. In reality, the Bighorn Mountains are located in northern Wyoming; here’s a link:

47) To the Sisters of Charity; here is a link to a book about them: (This website does not open in a new window so click the Back button to return to the Answers page)

48) Tom

49) Alcoholism. The directions are to “take one full bottle every other day;" the concoction is made of 55% herbs and the juice of flowers and 45% alcohol

50) Montana--although the scenery looks suspiciously like that around Moab, Utah! Tisdale explains to Brock and the boys that “here in Montana we have something called the ‘courtesy of the range’” when they bring Tisdale’s son back to his ranch; this is explained in an excerpt from The War on Powder River, at

GHISLAINE EMRYS - I hope readers have as much fun answering the questions as I did creating them! Feel free to post a comment on this page or on any of the other pages that comprise this fan tribute. Thanks!

NM131 - The quiz was a lot of fun! Much to my chagrin, I only scored a 43 - I'll have to watch the episodes again and study harder. I need to be a bona fide member of the Devil's Hole Gang. The answers, links and prize pages were entertaining as well. Your research and thoroughness are much appreciated. You included a trick question though, I was wracking my brain for a name that didn't exist but I wasn't confident enough to insist (I didn't give myself the point so maybe I SHOULD be a member of the DHG!)

GHISLAINE EMRYS - Based on your comment, nm131, I went and revised the question. So now your answer would generate one point and you can consider yourself a member in good standing of the Devil's Hole Gang! Congrats!

I had fun guessing. Not well enough though since I only scored enough points to be on probation. Thanks for the interesting quiz and website links. I'll get crackin' on my ASJ viewin' with an eye to details and off the handsome partners. Yeah, right, who am I kidding, the dark, dimpled one is mesmerizing.

Allegra here. Truly excellent and well thought out quiz and I was utterly rubbish at it. I definately need to watch the shows again - lots of " know that one really" going on but not enough results. So now I'll have to try and get the leader's attention in other ways. :-)

Great fun Ghislaine!!

The quiz was loads of fun. Thanks for the hard work and the additional info on the links. I really tanked on the Davis episode questions. I guess they require more attention in the future. - Sky

This quiz was absolutely delicious! Lots of work obviously went into making it (had to watch all those episodes again, drudgery, drudgery). The answers, associated links, and prizes were all fun, too. Wish I could say my score was higher - next time how about asking things like how long it takes to get to Tenstrike? Goldie

SILVERKELPIE - Yay! I finally finish working until 22.30 and at weekends and had a go at the quiz. I'm too ashamed to say how badly I did! I've decided to punish myself with an intensive course of DVD watching to bone up. I must have been distracted by something when I've watched them before. Can't think what though..........
