Another good episode that keeps the viewer's interest
13 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another good offering in the second hour long 'Gunsmoke' episode as we really get two stories combined into one.

When outlaw Frank Cassidy (Warren Stevens) rides to a farm house to get water, he is met by a young women Beulah Parker (Joanne Linville) claiming to be the owner of the farm. It appears that both Frank and Beulah are smitten with each other until Beluah's brother, Leroy, comes riding in advising that this was his farm. Frank rides out leaving Beulah upset.

Enter two hired gunmen, Jake Welch and Henry Head, that meet Leroy out in the field. They shoot Leroy in cold blood with the viewer knowing that someone has hired the two for the killing. Now the farm is Beulah's.

It appears obvious that Frank was the one to hire the gunmen. Once Leroy is dead Frank and Beulah are set for marriage. But it will come as a surprise to learn that the two gunmen has been hired by another. Plus they now have a new target to eliminate- Marshal Dillon.

A very well played show. Joanne Linville was excellent in this episode really brought her character to life. An entertaining watch for viewers.
