Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Saloon girl Laura Simmons (Gloria McGhee) asks Matt (James Arness) not to reveal her whereabouts to her fiance Philip Locke (Michael Pate), who has just arrived in town. But Philip arms himself with a shotgun and threatens violence if Laura doesn't immediately materialize. Convinced that Laura is not responsible for her current "disgraceful" state and that she wants to be "saved", Philip seems dangerously inclined to kill anyone who tells him otherwise. This episode is based on the Gunsmoke radio broadcast of December 19, 1953.
