The Gentleman from New Orleans is about a visit an elderly Jean Lafitte pays to Virginia City and befriends Hoss.  John Dehner did a great job playing Lafitte.  Four of the most moving of these episodes, i.e., The Wish; Fallen Woman, The Love Child and Forever, Parts I and II were written by Michael Landon, as was the really engrossing, Terror at 2:00.
