Storyline

The coming of the railroads vastly altered the cattle business, soon rendering cross-country trail drives unnecessary. Three cowboys, led by Will Parmalee, find the new West inhospitable to itinerant cattle drovers. Trouble seeks them out, and Matt Dillon finds himself on the opposite side of the law from his longtime friend Will. Written by richardann

Great episode, possibly the best!
15 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this back when it aired. I was watching an older episode of Gunsmoke today and wondered about it, and was able to find it by searching "Doak, Gunsmoke, IMDb" on Google. After all those decades, I still remembered the character's name! This episode could have been a full-length movie; the story was that good! This review is based on a 40+ year memory, so it's possible if I saw it again, I would change my mind. I have to pump up the number of lines to make the review minimum, so I'll add a few more comments. It was a great story about the end of the western cowboy era. Still not enough lines; arghh! I think this will do it.
