Actually I thought it was pretty good
22 November 2007 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

The scene outside the Long Branch seems professionally played and the long scene at the campfire is quite good, with just the right atmosphere. Arness's performance certainly doesn't lack conviction, although he seems to have been going to an acting teacher who taught him the "stare off into air while you say it" technique that looks so silly now. I can remember once in my life that I purposely looked in another direction while speaking with someone. It was to my mother when my college grades weren't up to snuff. That's hardly the situation here.

The twist at the end is excellent and I'd have to say that this show is one of the reasons why the program went on to be such a success. A couple years later Peter Whitney, (who looks kind of skinny here), would return as a mountain man who also had an Indian with him- in this case Angie Dickinson- in a much more famous episode of Gunsmoke, but one that isn't any better than this one.
