Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Marshal Matt Dillon (James Arness) is delighted when his old friend Cam Durbin (a pre-MaverickJack Kelly) arrives in Dodge City accompanied by his pretty young wife Tilda (Joan Tetzel). Having been hired to run the faro table at a local saloon, Cam hires Lonnie Pyke (Thann Wyenn) as his dealer--not realizing that Lonnie has a long-standing grudge against Matt. Before long, Lonnie has managed to turn Cam against Matt by claiming that the Marshal is having an affair with Tilda--and it looks like a bloody showdown is inevitable. Based upon a radio broadcast first heard on June 4, 1955, this is the final episode of Gunsmoke's second season on TV.
