      • This episode makes Burt Reynolds a kindred spirit to the King of Rock'n'roll, Elvis Presley.
        In Elvis' role of Pacer Burton in "Flaming Star"(1960) Elvis was Indian on his mother's side and white on his father's side.
        In Burt's first episode of Gunsmoke as Quint Asper, Burt was Indian on his mother's side and white on his father's side as well.

      • Burt Reynolds' first appearance as regular, blacksmith Quint Asper. A part he will play until 1965.
