One of the best Gunsmoke episodes
21 June 2018 | by trntyrozeSee all my reviews

James Stacy stole the show in this from the first scene. It was impossible not to fall for his wit and charm and the interplay between him and Festus was so entertaining. The viewer finds themselves rooting for JJ thru the whole episode. On a sad side note this was Stacy's lasT performance before the tragic motorcycle accident in Sept 1973 that claimed the life of his girlfriend and resulted in the loss of his left arm and leg. The episode actually aired for the first time about a month after the accident and Stacy was still hospitalized recuperating from his horrible injuries. Adds a significant and sad poignancy to this episode.
