worth seeing, just for Guy Stockwell's performance
6 September 2013 | by grizzledgeezerSee all my reviews

This episode -- which was also a radio episode from the same year -- suffers from being more of a concoction than a properly developed character study. (The ending is an unneeded deus-ex-machina.) What makes it a standout is Guy Stockwell's performance.

Guy's younger brother, Dean, is the more-familiar actor. Guy was ridiculously good-looking (with a shock of blond hair and big puppy eyes), and (wonder of wonders) he could act.

Brother, could he act. His performance here is so expressive and finely tuned that everyone else seems to be just reading their lines.

If the story had more depth, this would be one of the best "Gunsmoke" episodes.
