Good character actors
5 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Character actors from the period are in this episode. Denver Pyle, who plays Claudius, went on to play Uncle Jesse in the "Dukes of Hazzard." Shug Fisher, who played Emery, was Shorty in "The Beverly Hillbillies" and also went on to be in "The Dukes of Hazzard." Both actors are prominent. The story's plot is believable and interesting except for the scene where Claudius chugs a full bottle of whiskey in The Long Branch. It might make one wonder if Miss Kitty waters down her whiskey. The episode is well worth watching. Matt is not the main character in this episode, so Festus evokes the honor and morality associated with show's portrayal of old west characters. Festus, however is not exactly rewarded for it by his kin. The ending is interesting, enjoyable, and evocative of the era of the 1960's westerns.
