  • Classic episode with great acting!

    9.1
    This is a classic Gunsmoke episode! The acting in this episode is excellent. John Crawford as Loy plays the role of a villian exceptionally. Loy drops a slur on Chester that will make you laugh out loud. Although it\'s not a comical episode, it has several very funny one liners. If you enjoy watching Gunsmoke, this is a must see episode.
