He was the main squeeze of Miss Kitty...

James Arness, the 6-foot-6 actor who towered over the television landscape for two decades as righteous Dodge City lawman Matt Dillon in "Gunsmoke," died Friday. He was 88.

My girlfriend asked who James Arness was tonight. I shook my head. I thought everyone knew him. I hope they have a weekend of Gunsmoke on one of the cable channels soon. He will be missed.

He defined the "good guy in the white hat". Was a great character, and you wanted to believe he was a great person off the set too. He exuded charm and charisma.

BtW did you know Paul Mcartney was in a band before WIngs? I'm hearing someone say, what's a Wings?

Wha'd you do - rob the cradle? :rofl: J/K.. :whistle:
If I'm not mistaken "Gunsmoke" and "Bonanza" are both on TVLand Channel every afternoon for a few hours.. Check that out and maybe you can DVR them.. ;)
