R.I.P. Marshal Dillon

God rest the soul of an American television legend - actor James Arness, alias "Gunsmoke" lead Marshal Matt Dillon, dead today at the age of 88.
His other claim to movie fame was his portrayal of the carrot-looking monster in the camp classic "The Thing from Anotehr World," and later in "Them."
But from 1955-1975, the 6-7 actor (brother of the late Peter Graves) reigned as lord over the American West in the mythical Dodge City - with the likes of Festus, Miss Kitty, Doc Adams and Chester.
His talent and staying power will never been seen again.
