Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: A mountain has no need for people, but people do need mountains. We go to them for their beauty, for the exhilaration of standing closer to mysterious skies, for the feeling of triumph that comes from having labored to reach a summit. And I remember a day in the 1930's when I went to Waltons Mountain in search of manhood.

James Nusser
6 January 2020 | by pattiejsSee all my reviews

Mr. Nusser is among the most underappreciated actors in Hollywood. Never heard of him? Exactly my point! Mr. Nusser played the town drunk, Louie Pheeters, for the 25 year run of Gunsmoke. I watched his character develop in syndication and have come to the conclusion that he was every bit as talented as James Arness. His character had far more layers. He played the junkman in this episode. I wish someone would do some research and write his biography. I haven't found much info about him on the web.
