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

Didn't know he was the brother of Peter Graves. :slinkaway:

Neither did I. What a talented family that was.

May he rest in peace. :(

Gunsmoke was a show that everybody watched in its heyday. It was a Saturday night ritual. There were some very good stories; not always your typical western. I guess all of its most famous cast--Arness, Amanda Blake, Milburn Stone and Dennis Weaver are gone now. Very sad for those of us who grew up with the show.

For some reason, I thought he had died many years ago. I guess not.

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.

RIP Jim.
I thought he was already gone also.
Peter only died last year, didn't he?
RIP Peter also.

Gunsmoke was must see TV for my late grandfather. RIP 'Matt Dillon'.

They didn't look especially alike; but, their voices were almost identical.

RIP. Gunsmoke was one of the best ever. He was it's anchor for 20 years.
