Lauri Peters a great loss to acting
12 June 2019 | by gary-64659See all my reviews

Leading lady Lauri Peters is stunningly good, making this episode of "Gunsmoke". She was going on 21 here and had already starred in two A-movies as a teen. What a shame that after this appearance she never made another one for four years, and after that only very occasionally. On the other hand, she contributed mightily to the furthering of noted acting teacher Stanford Meisner's theory and practice for other young actors. Here she plays "Allie", a young runaway smitten with Matt Dillon who is molested before her would-be rapist's brother can deal with the attacker with a bottle over the head. A very touching, natural and intelligent portrayal by such a young actress.
