Two Paladins
8 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

I think what's interesting in this episode is that TV's Paladin, Richard Boone meets up with radio's Paladin, John Dehner. Since the radio version was popular and on that medium just a few years earlier, I wonder how many watched this episode of the TV version and got a little confused on hearing the voice of the Paladin they had known so well? John Dehner was always an excellent actor and he is so in this fine episode as well. William Conrad played Matt Dillon on radio's "Gunsmoke" and he did something similar as well. However, in 1973, only his voice was heard on TV's "Gunsmoke" in a narrative-driven episode. Conrad was too portly to play the action-driven Dillon on TV and Dehner was tied up doing TV's "Roaring 20's."
