Episode Title: "The Liar From Blackhawk" or "The Liar From Black Hawk"

Most sources list the title for the Gunsmoke episode that aired on 05/21/1955 as
"The Liar From Blackhawk"

However, this title is incorrect.

The correct title is "The Liar From Black Hawk".

Gunsmoke Script - "The Liar From Black Hawk"
Two versions of the script.
(One in a private archive and other from the Legacy Tobacco Documents Library Website.)
In addition to the Script Cover pages, this place name is also spelled 6 times as
"Black Hawk" in the dialog of both scripts.

Signing off for now,
