GUNSMOKE SEASON 10 Episode #19 “Chief Joseph” written by Clyde Ware story by Thomas Warner directed by Mark Rydell produced by Philip Leacock cinematography by Harry Stradling Jr. guests: Victor Jory, Robert Loggia, Michael Keep, Dennis Cross, Leonard Stone, Joe Maross, Willard Sage, Bing Russell At Delmonico’s, Festus and Doc have lunch when Dillon steps into to join them. A few minutes later, hotel clerk Howie asks Dillon to go over the Dodge House to settle an Indian issue. Dillon faces hotel owner Mr. Wiley (actor Leonard Stone) who almost orders him to remove three Indians from his place. Dillon meets war hero Chief Joseph (actor Victor Jory) who suffers from pneumonia and Doc is obliged to heal him at the marshal’s office when a newcomer named Cal Tripp (actor Robert Loggia) registers at the hotel and gently offers to share his room with the sick man. Tripp introduces himself as a US Calvary Lieutenant working undercover in plain clothes not to disturb the sensitivity of Chief Joseph that he plans to escort to Washington but the townspeople are prejudiced. Wiley organizes a meeting with people following his bias. Dillon faces mob agitator Charlie Britton (actor Joe Maross) at the Long Branch, is hit in the arm and fires him so he rides fast to warn Corly Watts (actor Willard Sage) about Chief Joseph: the murderer of his brother. Doc introduces Tripp to Miss Kitty when Britton arrives to settle his score … It’s a decent Indian and a mob/revenge entry. Notice the mouth inserts of Festus during the opening lunch scene at Delmonico’s. Actors Dennis Cross returns from the season 9 “Carter Caper”, Joe Maross from the season 7 “Coventry”, Leonard Stone from the season 8 “Blind Man’s Bluff”.
