  • Great Episode

    This is one of the best episodes of Season 19. Agree with everything rjkelley said.
  • Matt gets shot in the head and loses his memory. He is rescued by a window and falls in love.

    I found this to be a very special episode because we see more of Matt's wit and charm even though he has lost his memory. We see a gentler romantic side of him. Michael Learned is wonderful in this show both tough and feminine at the same time. Victor French (a regular guest star on Gunsmoke) is excellent as well, a “nice” bad guy with a romantic side. I think the writers and producers missed out not letting Matt and Kitty share an occasional kiss on screen. This was a well written, well acted Gunsmoke and one of my all time favorites.
