Saddle up for Gunsmoke Season 11

By James Whittington
Posted in Features, Wednesday 4th Jan 2017


Gunsmoke is a landmark adult Western centers on Marshal Matt Dillon of Dodge City. John Wayne turned down the leading role, suggesting James Arness instead, who remained for its entire run. Originating on radio (with William Conrad as Dillon), it moved to TV in September 1955. Its popularity spawned a number of copycats, but none would enjoy the longevity (20 seasons), and few the consistent quality of this classic. In one dramatic episode this season (number 11!), Marshal Matt Dillion is taken hostage by four convicts fleeing to Mexico, and later comes under fire when trying to protect a wounded outlaw worth $30,000, dead or alive, from two bounty hunters. Gunsmoke - Season 11 begins January 18th.
