Our pic today revisits “Quaker Girl,” the second of two Gunsmoke episodes in which Timothy appeared. It was first aired on December 10, 1966. Buster and I’m pretty sure that’s Dave (Tom Reese) are taking great pleasure in apprehending outlaw/sheriff’s deputy impostor Fred Bateman (William Shatner).
This episode was directed by the great Bernard L. Kowalski, one of the most talented and prolific producer/directors in television history. He directed Tim several times, and seemed willing to indulge him a bit as far as characterizations went. You know you’re in for some quality television when you see Kowalski’s name in the credits.
