  • Introduction of Festus

    8.5
    This was the first episode where Festus join Marshall Dillon in tracking a bad guy. Festus would later become a regular character replacing Dennis Weaver. This was not Ken Curtis first episode on Gunsmoke, as he had appeared before as a romantic killer.
  • This is my favorite episode of Gunsmoke.

    Ken Curtis, Denver Pyle, and Elizabeth MacRae all do a great job in this episode. April Clomley is a

    knock-out as a young girl who has attached herself to a no-good killer, Festus' Uncle Black Jack Haggen.

    In the end, it's April who saves the day. Watch this one, it's great.
