Trivia

In Pike's last scene with Sally after he's put in jail, he tells her to wait until he gets out in "September." This was obviously a reference to the producers' hopes that "Dirty Sally" would be picked up as a series for the fall schedule; the producers were unaware that CBS was going to purge almost all of its rural-appeal shows from the schedule instead. "Dirty Sally" did finally reach the air two and a half years later. See more »

The middle of the two parter was long- but the acting made for a good watch
21 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have never been a fan of two part episodes but will say that I enjoyed this episode of 'Pike' aka 'Dirty Sally'.

The plot is very simple a very poor aging woman named Sally (Jeanette Nolan) lives on the prairie and collect all sorts of trash. She is really fond of glass and her yard and house is scattered with her bottle which is all of her belongings. The only thing of value she really has in a mule that she dresses in a hat.

Cyrus Pike (Dack Rambo) is an outlaw that stolen money and is being tracked by Marshal Dillon and Festus. Pike stumbles up on Sally's old shack with a gun wound. Sally, being alone and wanting company, tends to the wounds and also throws Matt off his track when she advises that she has never seen him. But Pike also has some other outlaws chasing him and they are not just going to ride on when Sally says she had not seen him.

In one of the saddest scenes perhaps in the entire 'Gunsmoke' series, the three outlaws that are looking for Pike want information from Sally. When they do not get what they want they start shooting all her lovely bottles. She still will not give up any information until they threaten to shoot her mule. Her love for the mule made her tell them some tidbits but that did not faze the outlaws and they went ahead and shot her mule with her begging.

From a distance Pike hears the shots and returns to find the mule shot and Sally crying. Pike has two ways to go- either help Sally and stand trial for theft or keep running.

Even with the two part episode this story played out well. The viewer not only felt remorse and sorrow for Sally but also for Pike. Jeanette Nolan was a perfect cast as Dirty Sally and even Dack Rambo seemed to make his character come to life. This episode, even though long in the middle, ended on a nice note. If you can stand the two hours then it will be a nice watch.
