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

    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.

    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.
    RIP.
    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.........
