The episode you are talking about is The Badge .wildwest wrote: ↑Mon Feb 12, 2018 12:14 amCowgirl.....wasn't there an episode where Matt gets shot and Kitty takes care of him and then sells the Long Branch and leaves town. she goes to another town and I think goes partners in another saloon. She is tired of waiting on Matt and watching him get shot all the time
I agree 19 years is a long time not to have a romp in the hay like Lucas had with Lou. OR DID THEY?????
Very good episode! I'm not saying Matt comes looking for Kitty to ask her to come back to Dodge, but I like to think that.
I don't think there is an episode of Gunsmoke I don't like.
The lady who Kitty goes into partnership with is Claire Hollis (Beverly Garland). Beverly Garland had appeared in several episodes of Gunsmoke and in Time of the Jackals was a past love interest of Matt's.
I always liked Beverly Garland and I got to meet her about six months before her passing. I asked he about Amanda Blake and she said they they were good friends and how much she enjoying working on Gunsmoke.
I also bought a picture of her and Robert Horton together from A Man Called Shenandoah. He happened to be at the same festival (FOTW) that year.
FYI: For you Rifleman fans, she was once married to Richard Garland.
