John Carradine and Darryl Hickman
15 August 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Target" was the fifth season opener, the second of John Carradine's two appearances on GUNSMOKE, the first season's "Reed Survives" being the other. He plays Kader, a bitter landowner who implores his weakling son Danny (Darryl Hickman) to help him drive off a band of stranded gypsies who need a day to fix their broken wagon. Danny has other ideas, as he has fallen in love with gypsy girl Nayomi (Suzanne Lloyd), plotting to marry her in St. Louis if they can escape strict, forbidding gypsy law. Marshal Dillon (James Arness) gets involved when the gypsies recover Nayomi by knocking out Danny, who chooses to follow them with a stolen gun on a stolen horse. Canadian Suzanne Lloyd was a television veteran who also spent time in Britain, doing one episode of THE AVENGERS ("The Murder Market") and the low budget feature "The Return of Mr. Moto" (1965). Darryl Hickman, soon to give up infrequent on screen work for steady voiceovers, is the older brother of Dwayne Hickman, then popular as Dobie Gillis. That same year, Darryl had co-starred with Vincent Price in William Castle's "The Tingler," and was here reunited with John Carradine, proud cast members of John Ford's immortal "The Grapes of Wrath" (1940), also appearing together in 1942's "Northwest Rangers."
