    I NEVER missed Gunsmoke when I ws a kid - my grandpa and I watched it together.

    Later in life, I discovered that Peter Graves (Mission: Impossible) was Mr. Arness' brother - and forever after I have tried to picture them each in their brother's role!

    That is sad to hear. He is my 5th cousin from my Mother's side where an Arness married a Boyer. I was always so proud of that growing up as he seemed like the perfect man. When I was 12 we went to a big family reunion in Mn. He was there and we had such fun.

    Rest in Peace James xox

    I teared up when I read this the other day. I am a BIG Gunsmoke fan, and have been ever since I was a kid.

    Mr. Arness, you were great, I've always rated you up there with John Wayne, and you will be missed.

    RIP

    The varmints look to have succeeded and backed Mr. Dillon down in this scene which includes the classic line "Get out of Dodge."

    But of course they really haven't, not for long. Under Marshall Dillon, in Dodge City, in our childhoods, justice always prevailed.
