Trivia

This was actually a redo of the 24th episode of the first season of Gunsmoke on radio. I happened to hear the radio version recently and it's pretty much the same. The radio episode had the same title too. See more »

Reviewer kfo is right. Without the commanding Varela (Mamie) as the woman saloon owner, this entry would be a bust. There're little suspense, tension, or comedic byplay, usual hallmarks of the series. There is some good, snappy lines, plus the amusing sight of the strapping Varela strong-arming rowdy cowboys. At the same time, if I'm not mistaken, there're hints of Matt's not wanting to confront the formidable bar owner. The only real interest is watching Varela act like a roughhouse man.

Otherwise, the screenplay appears done on the fly, unusual for the series. Also, I suspect that Varela's gender-bending was inspired by Blake Edwards' innovative Peter Gunn (1958-1961) where the bar owner, Mother (Hope Emerson), also bends the feminine gender. Be that as it may, this half-hour departs from the series staple, mainly I think for the worse.

(In passing-- the odd title "Hinka Do" appears to have no relevance to the story. So I'm guessing it was just something to identify the working script.)
