| Great childhood memories
Since only a few comments, I'll add my memories of China Smith too. I was only about 8 or 10 y/o when I watched China Smith on my parents first TV in California. I haven't seen any of them since. They seemed so realistically foreign and adventurous at the time, seemingly taking place in exotic Asian locals. Low (cheap) production values went a long way back then on TV. We were so innocent at that time. But Dan Duryea did do an excellent job, with an attitude so perfect for the part, a little like Indiana Jones' persona decades later. I've now seen him in countless other supporting roles, generally playing clever devious bad guy parts. But I'll always remember him primarily for the hero in China Smith. I don't really remember what the plots were about other than their Asian locals, but I do remember throughly enjoying them. I don't think I want to see any China Smith episodes today (even if they were available) and spoil all those great childhood memories. Oh, today I'm a happily retired engineer living in Thailand. Hmm, did China Smith have anything to do with that?
