Leonard Nimoy's Gunsmoke episode

There I was last night, doing housework, when a friend called at 10 minutes to 8 and said that if I got the Starz western channel I should turn it on to see Leonard Nimoy as an Indian in an episode of Gunsmoke.

Much to surprise, my cable company had that channel, so I tuned in. No Nimoy. I figured I'd missed him, but I stuck it out the whole 10 minutes and there he was! Covered with brown face makeup, raising Spock-like eyebrows and intoning cliched "Indian" phrases.

I think this is the first time I’ve seen Nimoy stand next to someone who made him look short.

I also think this is the first time I've seen Gunsmoke, but I may have deleted the memory from my brain.

I missed this scene, but found it on Youtube:
