the shootout on Main Street in Dodge
on July 19, 2013
We still watch the reruns of the original especially those in the earliest days. Matt Dill\on is a character based on Wyatt Earp but James Arness hits the nail on the head. Arness should know a little about this as he was wounded in the invasion of Salerno in Italy. We especially enjoy the early films with Dennis Weaver and his limp. Most fans wanted Matt and Miss Kitty to marry but that was not to be. Ken Curtis was alright as Festus but the show was not the same.
When Arness passed away there was almost a national wake by those who grew up with those characters.
