I haven't seen them all, but I'm betting this is one of the worst episodes of Gunsmoke! A close second would be the "The Wiving" also a Gunsmoke episode. Both these turkey's had the same characters but most were played by different actors. Both story lines were very week, the parts were poorly written as well. This left little for the actors to do with these silly characters. Jim Backus and Harry Morgan's characters have facial hair and is some of the worse make up I've seen in a series of this quality. I've seen better beards in high school plays. This was a compete was of time. Good actors like David Soul, and really good actors like Jim Backus are completely wasted on this weak episode. Perhaps because it was nearing the end of the run of great TV series they started having trouble getting good scripts.
