One of the greatest casts ever!
25 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rather than review this episode (it's been done thoroughly), I would like to state that Hung High has one of the best casts to grace the screen during Gunsmoke's 20yr run.

Six of the guest stars are very well-known, with a couple of others who are lesser known, but nevertheless have their place in pop culture as well.

1- Edward Asner (Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant, Up)

2- Robert Culp (I Spy, Greatest American Hero)

3- George Lindsey (Andy Griffith Show, Hee Haw)

4- Elisha Cook, Jr. (Star Trek TOS, Magnum PI, and a gazillion others)

5- Michael Conrad (Hill Street Blues

6- Harold J. Stone (I remember him from Bridget Loves Birney, but the man was darned prolific)

Also, a couple of others to note:

7- Steven Marlo (in Star Trek TOS, A Piece of the Action, he was the gangster Kirk conned with the fake card game "Fizbin")

8- Arthur Peterson ( The Major in SOAP)

IMO this would likely be one of the greatest casts of the series, if not THE greatest.
