Veteran actress Jeanette Nolan in an endearing role., 23 April 2006
Author: Wtrussosr from United States

TVland Channel ran the "Dirty Sally" episodes April 23, 2006--about 40 years after their first broadcast. Jeanette Nolan played Sally; a toothless, tobacco-chewing old woman who lived in a shack about ten miles out of Dodge City.

Scratching out a meager living by picking up the droppings from passing wagon trains and selling them in town, Sally was often teased for her ragged clothing and soiled appearance. One of her finds on the trail-a wounded gunman-would end up changing her life.

This two-part episode centers on the often testy relationship between the young outlaw and the old outcast. Jeanette Nolan, aged 60 at the time, was perfect as the crusty 67 year old Sally who had few earthly goods but who possessed a code of honor that might have been as large as that of anyone in Kansas, let alone Dodge City
