Cain and Able Revisited
11 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is a slightly twisted melodrama consisting of a manipulative woman who comes between two brothers. None of the guest stars are household names, but they all do a very good job.

Notable quotes: Relco:"Ain't you just a little bit out of your territory here Marshall?" Matt:"I take my territory with me and right now, you're in it."

This is a great episode for Festus fans. Ken Curtis (Festus) is still fleshing out the role that would become his signature. He is not yet Matt's Deputy and at the onset, he arrives in Dodge at the end of a cattle drive. He has some very funny scenes with Burt Reynolds as Quint and with Doc (Milburn Stone) and Kitty (Amanda Blake) at the Longbranch where they are introduced to a pearl button bangle billy of a Haggen Hunch at the Roulette wheel. Later on he saves Matt's life and they team up to defeat the bad guys, this is classic television.

I believe that the poor fellow that gets shot in the opening credits might be Ted Jordan, the same actor who would go on to portray the loud-mouthed Nathan Burke in the color episodes.

If you love Gunsmoke, this episode is the Nazz.
