Marshall Dillon died today.

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.

    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.
