Gunsmoke Episode Question      Wed Jul 26, 2006 4:37 pm Reply with quote

William Shatner is not listed in the credits for that episode.

William Schallert did guest star on that episode. He's probably best known for his role as Martin Lane (Patty's dad) on the "Patty Duke Show". Or you may remember his in his role as "Nilz Barris", The Federation Undersecretary Of Agricultural Affairs, on the original "Star Trek" series episode, "The Trouble With Tribbles". He was also President of the Screen Actor's Guild from 1979-1981. His 84th birthday was just a few weeks ago and he's still working! He does a lot of voice work on animated projects but he still performs too! His latest film titled, "Sweetzer" is in post-production!

The little girl you mentioned was probably Pamelyn Ferdin. She would have been 8 or 9 years old when that episode was filmed. She was a regular guest star on many popular series throughout the 1960s and 70s so she probably did look familiar. She also had a regular role on the "John Forsythe Show" in the mid-1960s. She's only worked in show business a few times since 1979 because she left the business to become a registered nurse about that time. She married a Surgeon in 1986.

Gunsmoke Brother      Tue Aug 08, 2006 8:47 am Reply with quote

James Arness' brother, "Peter Graves", never appeared on Gunsmoke. He did, however, direct a few episodes in 1967. Peter is probably best known for his role as Jim Phelps on the series, "Mission Impossible".

The only time I could find that they were both on the same show was when Peter was on one episode of the series, "This Is Your Life".

Female Gunsmoke Names      Sun Sep 10, 2006 1:46 pm Reply with quote

Festus' mule's name was "Ruth".

And another good female name from Gunsmoke (of which there are very few) would be "Sally" after "Sally Fergus" who appeared on 8 episodes of the series. That character inspired the only "spinoff" for Gunsmoke when Sally Fergus became the main character on the 13 episode series titled, "Dirty Sally".

I can't count LOL!!! I have 2 males & 4 females. MS. Dillon & Festus are the males - Ms. Kitty for one F. Now - 2 are twins & I'd like there to be a tie as twins are rare. Per chance was MS. Dillon's horse a mare & was the name known? That would be perfect, leaving Dirty Sally for the odd one out. (The little sweetheart)

Gunsmoke Females      Wed Sep 27, 2006 7:19 am Reply with quote

Matt Dillon's horse was a stallion named "Buck".

The only two other females that I can find information for that had anything to do with Gunsmoke are two more actresses that appeared on multiple episodes. They are:

Fran Ryan (Role: Hannah)
Sarah Selby (Role: Ma Smalley)

If anyone else can find the information on any of the saloon girls names or other actresses (even if they only made a single appearance) I'd also like to see that information. Their contributions should be added to the web somewhere.

Actress on Gunsmoke      Sat Jan 20, 2007 2:45 pm Reply with quote

Faye Spain actually appeared on three episodes of Gunsmoke titled, "Mavis McCloud (1957)", "A Man a Day (1961)", and "Wonder (1967)".

She appeared in nearly 100 movies and TV episodes. Most of the films she appeared in were considered "B" movies but she also appeared in some classics including "God's Little Acre (1958)", "Al Capone (1959)", and "The Godfather: Part II (1974)".

Faye unfortunately died young in 1983 at 50!

Matt Dillon being shot!      Sun Jan 21, 2007 6:20 pm Reply with quote

I have been watching Gunsmoke I guess since it came on the air and I have a neat trivia question. How many times was Matt Dillion shot during the 20 year run? I would think he was one massive scar.....I know I watch one episode recently where an outlaw stabbed him with a fork....

Does anyone remember a 2 part episode of Gunsmoke about Dodge City being invaded by a group of outlaws? Matt appears to have been killed but is actually is hiding and retakes the town at the end of the second episode. The bad guy had red hair and a dark beard and I think he was called John Gore. Every online episode list that I have seen does not describe this episode.
