  • Great episode of people trapped on a train and menaced by both Indians and weather.

    This is clearly the best episode of Gunsmoke. The development of the characters on the train is so believable that you\'d think you\'d met them. I\'ve always been partial to books, movies, and TV shows on or around trains because I think trains can really evoke mood. The snow bound train really built the mood well: cold, desparate, confined. Not enough room for the smaller minds to think. The characterization of the Indians seemed excellent, they mirrored Matt: resolute, bent on justice, and honorable above all. I particularly liked the unusual way it ended...very satisfying.moreless

    • The MacGyver single episode, "Slow Death" (episode 1-19), is a variation of this 2-part Gunsmoke episode.

    • This episode has an unusual production ending, giving the writer and director credits with six minutes yet to go. An epilogue then wraps up each of the featured players' story lines, with the name of the actor and character appearing on screen below the face of that person's final scene, i.e. "Tim Considine as Scott Coleman." Then after the final shot, we see the name of the producer and executive producer, which rolls into the final credits and end theme song (short version). No actors credits, including the regulars, are given during the final credits roll.
