Storyline

Matt, in pursuit of three bank robbers, inadvertently catches a fourth one -- their bagman, who swiped the loot and took off. The thieves learn what's happened and go in pursuit of both Matt and the thief. While stopped at a water hole, Matt and the thief meet a group of Indians who are about to leave a squaw in the desert to die. The startled thief asks why and is told the woman is a bad-luck omen, having outlived both of her husbands. To his own surprise, the thief bargains to take the squaw with him and Matt. He doesn't have any regard for the woman, but she proves startlingly helpful when the bank robbers catch up with the group and lay siege to their cabin. Written by Peter Harris

"The Squaw"; Best ever episode.
13 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Arlen Martel"Quanah" and John Saxon"Gristy Calhoun" did a fantastic job in the portrayal of their parts. Heartwarming to realize that Quanah was always able to logically think things through and was "a step ahead" of everyone involved. Also, very entertaining was the excellent use of similes,metaphors,personification,etc.in the script. e.g."..just my luck I'll die in a preacher's back yard!","he's got the patience of a bird watching a worm hole!",and several others. This has just got to be the best episode that Gunsmoke ever produced.(S20|E14,1975).
