Storyline

In a situation much like the play referenced by the title, the children of two prominent families have fallen in love, though the patriarchs of both have forbidden they see each other. Dispite the girl's father having threatened the boy with death, the two run away, and go to Dodge City for Matt's help. He reluctantly does, though the father arrives soon afterward, warning that if he doesn't turn them over to him, he and his ranch hands will tear the town apart searching for them. Matt and Chester secretly have the young couple married and sent off in a stage coach, and delay the father back at his estate until he cools down, and finally accepts what has happened.

Maybe Teen-agers Will Buy It
21 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

Lacklustre episode that brings the tired story of Romeo and Juliet to Dodge City. There's neither suspense nor character interest as young lovers Vaughn and Eden try to get around feuding fathers with the help of cupids Matt and Kitty. Vaughn and Eden (in a perfect 50's form-fitting bra) generate about as much chemistry as two goldfish in a bowl, while the shootout (to provide some action) is among the lamest of the series. Probably the high spot is the spirited exchange between Matt and Doc over meddling in a family affair. Apparently writer Meston got the assignment to come up with a story that might appeal to teenagers of the time. The results suggest he took the easy way out, and show why he needed to stick to melodrama (just listen to the trite dialogue between Eden and Kitty in her upstairs room). Waste of a good half-hour.
