Gunsmoke lasted 20 years and James Arness made it happen. 
Didn't talk much but he sure kept the town clean. 
RIP Big Jim

      Another little piece of America is gone- he gave us so many hours of entertainment as Marshall Dillon.

        That was one show that my Dad and I enjoyed watching together. Good memories. RIP Marshall Dillon!

          I met my wife and fell in love because she was dressed as Miss Kitty.  RIP Marshall.

            I read today that initially the role was offered to John Wayne who turned it down. According to the story James Arness also turned it down because I guess he wanted a movie career. John Wayne advised him to take the role and the rest as they say is history.

              I always loved the scraggy people that would grace the show from time to time, unusually nasty! LOL!

                  One of the first adult westerns. The reruns stand up well. I wish i could see the black and white shows more easily. James Arness had such presence . RIP sir.
