James Arness Has Died

James Arness, who played Marshall Dillon for 20 years on one of American TV's greatest, longest-running and most-beloved shows, Gunsmoke, has died at the age of 88.  Arness, who was six-foot-six, had a tragic personal life in that his wife and daughter predeceased him due to drug overdoses.  He will be much missed but is a rock-solid part of the cultural landscape of American popular culture.
