Outside of Dodge, a trapper rides upon two men leaning over a body. Thinking it's a robbery, he shoots at them and runs them off.

His story changes with each telling and when they catch them the town wants to do nothing less than lynch them both. Written by DrDOS

Did You Know?


George Lindsay's character tricks Festus into coming into the jail cell, around the 46:00 mark, grabs his gun and locks Festus in the cell by slamming the cell door. Lindsay must have used too much force because if you look in the right corner of the screen at that moment the wall separates and a corner bead of tape, or some other material rolls down like someone is peeling it off, they never break character.

Episode Name Error
9 April 2016 | by (Pennsylvania, United States) – See all my reviews

Concerning the confusion about this Episode, I ran into the same thing in 2016 as reviewer ReneFaye77 did.

As I was reading the review online from my TV App... it listed 'Two Tall Men' was to be airing.. the synopsis online says about Doc Adams and some Money.... etc etc.... Matt to the rescue..etc..

I quickly realized this was not what was unfolding on my TV.. Luckily, 'renafaye77' had a review that made sense, BUT other reviewers were describing the episode that was on my TV App.

So, for many years now and across different TV Stations, the Episode "Two Tall Men" is listed when the actual episode is "The New Society" which is posted on IMDb as the 35th Episode of Season 10.

I hope 'Two Tall Men' is a good as 'The New Society'. Which was Very Good.
