EDIT
Taps for Old Jeb
AIRED:
Jeb Crater and his prospecting partner Sholo are camping when Stretch Morgan rides up. Jeb invites him to share a cup of coffee and is impressed with his prowess with a gun. Explaining that they've finally struck it rich, Jeb hires Stretch as a bodyguard. Arriving in Dodge, Jeb tells everyone he's going to throw a party at the Long Branch. After bathing, Jeb and Stretch hide the gold pouches in the ground under the bath tub (Jeb doesn't trust banks), not telling Sholo because he might reveal its location if he has too much to drink. After the party Jeb is hit on the head and the search is on for Stretch.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Jeb rides off to "pretty himself up" Festus says to Matt, "Do you reckon old Jed really has got all that gold, Matthew?" The error is: he should have said "Jeb" instead of "Jed."

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (3)

      • The synopsis is used with permission and is in the words of the person who e-mailed me.

      • Even though the episode "Seven Hours to Dawn" (Sept. 18,1965) was scheduled to air first, Morgan Wooodward himself said in the Gunsmoke reference book that this episode was his first hour long episode.

      • Morgan Woodward had previously appeared in the Gunsmoke episode, "Potato Road" (Oct. 12,1957), but with this episode he began a run of many guest spots on the series. In fact he appeared in more episodes than any other guest star, a total of 17 as many different characters. He is best known as the Walking Boss in Cool Hand Luke (1967), his other film credits include, The Great Locomotive Chase (1956), Gunpoint (1966), Firecreek (1968), The Wild Country (1971), One Little Indian (1973), Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976), Girls Just Want to Have Fun (1985), and Dark Before Dawn (1989). He was a semi regular on the series, The Life and Times of Wyatt Earp (1955-61) and a regular on Dallas (1980-87) replacing sort-of Jim Davis' character.
