Did these Gunsmoke guest stars play heroes or villains?

Were these memorable characters good or evil?

 CBS Television Distribution

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?

12 of 12, question 11 was tricky, because he was a victim of circumstances.
