Vintage Amanda Blake on Gunsmoke
28 November 2017 | by jmarcheseSee all my reviews

Feminine, maternal, loving, gentle, rational, mentally tough, fiercely protective, moral; we see the full character of Miss Kitty in this fine Gunsmoke  episode.

Kathleen Hite wrote a true gem in "Miss Kitty" about a young orphan Thad Ferrin (well played by Roger Mobley) who is whisked from the hands of evil by his bio-mom, then by his adoptive aunt, Miss Kitty. Miss Hite's goal was to show the viewing audience what Miss Kitty was all about by developing her strong character; and she succeeded. All of the above adjectives are portrayed during the episode from Kitty dealing with Thad to her dealing with Matt, Chester, & Doc, and with the outlaws.

John Lasell plays a strong role as Tucker Ferrin in that the viewing audience will absolutely hate him.

Director Harry Harris used some great closeups to depict a climactic showdown of Good vs. Evil.

I thoroughly enjoyed "Miss Kitty" in that the essence of her whole being comes out; and it's not surprising she owns & runs a saloon. I wished it was shot in color, however.
