Gun and the Nun is made up of snippets from several episodes of the 1971-73 TV series Alias Smith and Jones. Most of this 73-minute ersatz feature is comprised of an hour-long episode titled "The Reformation of Harry Briscoe," in which reformed outlaws Hannibal "Smith" Heyes (Pete Duel) and Kid "Jones" Curry (Ben Murphy) join a search for $30,000 in stolen money. One of the participants is a nun, Sister Isabel (Jane Merrow), who probably isn't all she seems. Con man Harry Briscoe is played by J.D.Cannon, who in earlier episodes of Alias Smith and Jones (represented in flashback form in Gun and the Nun) passed himself off as a government agent. The Gun and the Nun was prepared as a CBS Late-Night movie, then was withdrawn when the entire Alias Smith and Jones series went into syndication.
