TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 4 January 2009
CBS Television and Paramount Pictures presents "GUNSMOKE: THE THIRD SEASON VOL. ONE" (14 September 1957- 18 January 1958) (500 mins/In Glorious Black & White) (digitally remastered in Dolby) -- The television series ran from September 10, 1955 to March 31, 1975 on CBS for 635 episodes --- Until 2005, it was the longest run of any scripted primetime series with continuing characters in American primetime television --- According to a James Arness interview, John Wayne was offered the role, but wouldn't do it; Wayne was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, and at that time, working in television was seen as a huge step down in prestige for a star actor.

In the end, the primary roles were all recast, with James Arness taking on the lead role of Marshal Matt Dillon upon the recommendation of John Wayne, who also introduced the first episode of the series; Dennis Weaver playing Chester Goode; Milburn Stone being cast as Dr. Galen "Doc" Adams and Amanda Blake taking on the role of Miss Kitty Russell, owner of the Long Branch Saloon --- Norman MacDonnell became the associate producer of the TV show and later the producer. John Meston was named head writer --- Arness, in his role on Gunsmoke, achieved what no other actor at the time had ever matched: he played the same character on the same scripted series for 20 years - at the time the longest uninterrupted period a primetime actor had played the same role in the same show.-- (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
