My own memory of Gunsmoke involves Sunday evening visits to my cousins where we'd sit in his living room as a family and watch the show. Talk about a clean, clear, moral message, Gunsmoke was it. The world lost a wonderful asset when the movie was discontinued in 1975. I was 25 years old, one year married, and my youngest daughter, Susan, was born the same year.
What a sad day that must have been for the cast. I suppose the only other show I watched any where near as long as Gun Smoke was the Andy Griffith Show which ran from 1960 through 1968.
The following is a documentary on the cast of Gunsmoke. It goes into the lives and eventual deaths of all the major players in this wonderful show. If you're as old as I am, it will bring tears to your eyes. Scroll down for additional information and some great offers, provided by Amazon, the best.
