Garland + Breck = Magic
31 January 2021 | by swog85See all my reviews

Small Screen Magic is the result from the talents of Beverly Garland and Peter Breck in this episode of Gunsmoke. Garland's character, of Leah, the saloon gal has not lost her kindness even if saloon life left her jaded. Jubal Tanner was completely jaded from his time fighting The Civil War, and other events like what happens to him in the story. The story revolves around those two primarily, their interactions with Gunsmoke regulars and others. Without spoiling the story, I assure Gunsmoke fans THIS episode is among the finest of all Gunsmoke stories! "The Odyssey of Jubal Tanner" - A "must see"!
