Gunsmoke

Marshal Matt Dillon is in charge of Dodge City, a town in the wild west where people often have no respect for the law. He deals on a daily basis with the problems associated with frontier life: cattle rustling, gunfights, brawls, standover tactics, and land fraud. Such situations call for sound judgement and brave actions: of which Marshal Dillon has plenty.

    The gunfight between Matt Dillon and an unknown gunman that opened every episode was shot on the same main street as that used in High Noon. During one filming of this gunfight, as a joke on everyone else, James Arness let the gunman win. With the anti-violence movement of the early 1970's, the opening gunfight was dropped, replaced by Matt riding his horse.
