Did these Gunsmoke guest stars play heroes or villains?

Were these memorable characters good or evil?

Appearing on Gunsmoke was a big step for up-and-coming actors and a chance for established stars to play a character they might not normally play. There were countless guest stars over the series’ 20-year run, most arriving in Dodge City to stir up trouble. However, some were friends and allies of Marshall Matt Dillon.

Now is your chance to distinguish between the two. Out of these Gunsmoke guest stars, can you guess who is playing a hero and who is embodying a villain?

9 of 12. Color or B/W which are better? B/W shows always seemed more realistic to me. 🤠

11/12. Loved Gunsmoke so much I bought the entire series. Where good guys were good and bad guys were terrible. Shows today only have bad guys and worse guys. You have to choose which bad guy you like the best. Man, things have changed!!
