Richard Van Vleet (born 1942) as Peter Bowers and Debbie Watson as Eileen Linden in The Virginian (TV 1962–1971) season 7, episode 21 “Eileen” – broadcast 5 March 1969.

Eileen Linden is visiting for six weeks with her father’s friend Clay Grainger. In an agreement with her father, she is to spend the time away from a man she wants to marry. The man shows up at Shiloh with a hidden purpose.

The show’s producers wanted Debbie Watson to join the regular cast as Eileen, however Debbie refused as she had a two year old son and a failing marriage. Her refusal caused Universal Pictures to suspend her studio contract as punishment. Two years later she retired from acting.
