Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Much against her better judgment, Kitty (Amanda Barnes) hires dewey-eyed Rene Decker (Karen Sharpe) to work at the Long Branch. Matt (William Conrad) is rather touched by Rene's naivete, and is certain that Kitty will be able to keep the girl on the straight and narrow. What Matt doesn't realize--until it is too late--is that Kitty is a conniving coquette who loves watching men fight over her affections...and isn't all that terribly concerned if one of those fights has fatal consequences. This episode is based on the Gunsmoke radio broadcast of August 5, 1956.
