Happy trails to James Arness
We checked out a few videos this morning to catch another glimpse of James Arness in his legendary role as Matt Dillon on Gunsmoke. They don't make 'em like that anymore -- good TV westerns and men of true grit like Arness, who might have been acting but who could tell? He died Friday at age 88.
This tribute to the towering actor was posted on YouTube three years ago. At least one commentor (naturally) had all sorts of problems with the background music, but we think Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" is a perfect match for the montage.
Happy trails, Sheriff.
