gunsmoke was a great series,but i put Bonanza 1st..Ben Cartwright and his boys made family life that more liveable and loving..i find that Festus Haggan and doc made the show more excitable..chester didn't move me at all..festus (ken curtis) was a gifted actor and superb me some festus......

I was 12/12. sometimes when you see a photo from a show the lighting and the shadows can give away the answer.

I don't know what it is about Gunsmoke, I grew up watching it in both B&W and Color, but I don't like it in color. I think that by the time they got around to color, the show had been on so long that they ran out of good story-lines. Got kinda ho-hum if you know what I mean.
