His other famous role is probably "The Thing." My favorite movie of his is "Big Jim McLain" starring Arness and John Wayne as a couple of FBI agents hunting down Commies in Hawaii. It's a real guilty pleasure for me.

He also had a very small role in John Wayne's movie, "Hondo". I can't remember if it is Wayne or Ward Bond's character in the film that decks Arness.

What an iconic figure he was.
He, his late son; and his brother (Peter Graves) are re-united, now.

He also lost a daughter during his own lifetime..

Marshall Matt Dillon was one of the very few authority figures who never, ever let us. I shall miss him so.........:(
