Season 3 Episode 106 Aired: 3/22/1958 Tom Cassidy (a drunk) tries to kill Dan Clell (a new gambler) in town.
I like the way Clell thinks. Im gunna dump my girlfriend and shack up with her daughter when she graduates next year, I reckon.
That guy with the stache was scum,as are all stache wearing boys ….you all need to be shot, slapped and institutionalized…in that order….Death to the stache and allscum that wear them
I think Chester owned that song, Run rabbit run….
According to the bagavad-gita (5,000 years old?) a man stealing another man’s wife is a capital offense- or was.
the short “Gunsmoke” episodes in black and white are my favorites
If this was written today, Matt would have shot Clell, Cassidy would have gone to rehab, Flora would have found out that Cassidy was her father and everyone would have lived happily ever after. The old Gunsmoke episodes weren’t written that way and this is a good example. People make mistakes and ruin their life, just as in real life. Bad things can happen.
Ross Martin–very versatile character actor, equally credible good guy or baddy.
Maybe I’ve seen too many of this kind of plot, but I knew instantly why the drunk had it in for RM’s character.
Bottleman done it right in this special case .
Awesome! Simply brilliant how the writers could develop such a great story with just 26 minutes to work with. No such talent today.
Miss McCay went on to star in the famous “Chato” episode in 1971. Very good actress.
SPOILER!: I’m not sure Matt should have arrested that old Tom Cassidy in the end. Clell was pulling a gun.
Thanks so much for the episodes. Keep season 3 and 6 coming. If you have the real episodes of “joke’s on Us” and “speak me fair”( season 5), I would love to see them. The episodes here with those 2 names are not the correct episodes.
Never knew Kitty was a partner in the saloon at first
Man, that’s sad, if Tom woulda let Matt handle it. Matt woulda probably shot Clell if he shot at the stage coach. Really like the ones where Matt tries ta help strangers.
