This Gunsmoke film was very enjoyable, with a great storyline and Arness outstanding as usual. Morgan Woodward was a great choice as co-star & western veterans Pat Hingle and Don Collier were both top-notch.

Unlike the lackluster Bonanza films made around this same time, all the Arness Gunsmoke films are highly recommended. They capture the magic of the series.
This is great entertainment and does great honor to the Gunsmoke legend. Outstanding !
