From the Inside Flap

James Arness gives the full story on his early years, his family, his military career and his film work in Hollywood, including appearances in the cult-favorite science fiction movies Them! and The Thing. He had a very long run on television's Gunsmoke and a role in the miniseries How The West Was Won. His post-theatrical period is also covered.

This is a republication in paperback of the 2001 edition--the long anticipated account of one of the icons of 20th-century television. He offers many anecdotes of interacting with the Gunsmoke family, such as Miss Kitty, Doc and Festus. His own work as a producer is covered. Throughout are previously unpublished photographs from the author's collection. Appendices include comments by show biz colleagues and Gunsmoke alumni, and a sampling of letters received from his fans. Actor and fellow Gunsmoke performer Burt Reynolds has written a foreword to the book.

I enjoy the series, Gunsmoke, on TV which was started in the late fifties in America; this book is an interesting look into the life of its main protagonist, the Dodge City Marshall, Matt Dillion. I enjoyed the book very much and recommend you buy the TV DVDs also for good clean entertainment where the baddies always lose and the good always win. The show lasted for 20 years and is a record for its type of series.

As a major fan of 'Gunsmoke' and its entire cast, this is a joy to read. I learned a lot of things about this lovely man and think he was more like, Matt Dillon, than he realized. Rest in Peace, Mr. Arness
