According to the HAVE GUN WILL TRAVEL COMPANION by Martin Grams, Jr. and Les Rayburn, actor Milton Selzer had trouble pronouncing some Hebrew words during the marriage ceremony, so writer Shimon Wincelberg dubbed for Selzer during this scene. See more »
I tuned into this episode today (16 June 2011) on Encore Westerns, roughly 50 years after this episode first aired. I personally know Noah Keen, so I had to see this.
And this IS a great episode!
No one is killed by gunfire here, and the shooting that takes place ends up with a great punchline. What we see is a great human interest story directed by Richard Donner, and a chance to see a Jewish wedding in a television show. Noah's character is out to disrupt the wedding, and his actions (and those of his gang) seem to echo the actions of the Holocaust. Clearly, there was a metaphor here. Some might well balk at this, but that is their loss.
No one loses their lives at the wedding, which manages to get completed. And we get treated to a cool, offbeat episode of "Have Gun, Will Travel"!!
