Marshall Matt Dillon (James Arness) once again patrols the streets of Dodge City in this film, the second of five made-for-TV movie sequels to the long-running television series “Gunsmoke.” Fresh out of retirement, Marshall Dillon tracks an Apache warrior who kidnapped his long-lost daughter. In exchange for her release, Dillon promises to rescue Chief Geronimo’s sons from an Army prison.

Hi, I gave this a substantially higher rating than Return to Dodge because this is a good movie to watch, plus Matt Dillon LOOKS like Matt Dillon. Not some loner mountain man with Patrick Swayze like hair.
This movie is good at face value and if you like Westerns, but it’s not for the Gunsmoke fan. Here’s why: Many are still angry that the writers allowed Matt Dillon 1 kiss to someone other than Miss Kitty. In the GS episode “Matt’s Love Story.” He gets amnesia and is saved by a hard-nosed, woman rancher. She learns to love him and he her. Matt kisses her and then spends the night with her. At the episode Matt finally regains his memory and realizes he cannot stay with the woman, Mike Yardner(Michael Learned). She’s angry but understands. FFWD to Last Apache, Mike Yardner has a daughter named Beth who is Matt’s love child from that fateful night way back when. Mike tell Matt about Beth and he returns to the ranch. But Beth has been kidnapped by Apaches so it’s Daddy Matt to the rescue.
I think it was a disservice to bring up the Matt’s Love Story plot in this movie and a greater insult to show Matt had a love child. It just didn’t jibe with the GS standard.
