Description
 
Gunsmoke
Volume 14
 
 
Around Dodge City and in the territory on west -- there’s just one way to handle the killers and the spoilers -- and that’s with a U.S. Marshall and the smell of “Gunsmoke”! “Gunsmoke” starring William Conrad. The story of the violence that moved west with young America -- and the story of a man who moved with it. I’m that man, Matt Dillon, United States Marshall -- the first man they look for and the last they want to meet. It’s a chancy job -- and it makes a man watchful...and a little lonely.
 
Intent on setting it apart from other programs, the creators behind Gunsmoke focused on upending the traditional storybook ending in Westerns. Sure, The Lone Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy, and others made mistakes. Yet these mistakes were just minor nuisances for the heroes. Marshall Matt Dillon was not a picture perfect radio Western cowboy hero – he was far from it and the people he tried to help were all too often placed in more dire circumstances than the ones he was trying to save them from.
 
More than once, Marshall Matt Dillon failed and miserably so. He arrived too late to prevent a lynching. He amputated a man’s leg in an attempt to save his life, but the patient died anyway. All too often Marshall Dillon played his hand after laying all his cards on the table and bitterly lost – and those missteps caused even Miss Kitty’s faith in him to falter and waver. Several times, even his triumphs ended badly.
 
There were also aspects of his job that Marshall Dillon hated, especially when he had to enforce laws he disagreed with, and he wasn’t above voicing his disgust – something no Western hero before him had ever done. Dillon walked areas of gray often, while other Western heroes of the time were constantly pure. Sometimes Dillon even looked the other way. This made the Marshall more real to the listeners.

Gunsmoke on Radio July 31, 2018
Reviewer: Richard McLeod from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
Volume II in the Archives Treasures series includes a 5 hour Documentary of Gunsmoke completed in the mid 1970's which extensively interviews all of the major Actors and writer John Meston including the Executive Staff connected with the creation of Gunsmoke.  All of the major Actors are interviewed except Howard McNear, who had passed away by that time.  If you enjoy the radio series of Gunsmoke, you will find this Documentary fascinating.

The Radio Archives staff has done an exceptional job in the restoration of all the Gunsmoke programs and their listings thus far are quite extensive.  Each Volume comes with unique and colorful artwork in heavy duty cases with individual plastic sleeves for individual protection of each CD.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
