Gunsmoke
Volume 9
 
 
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.
 
In the early programs, Matt Dillon has a grudging tolerance for his deputy, Chester Proudfoot. Chester’s primary purpose it seemed, both to Matt and the audience, was to essentially irritate Dillon. Whether it was his constant searching through desk drawers or putting sugar in his whiskey, Chester’s idiosyncrasies defined the character more than anything else. As the show continued, however, the two men developed an easy friendship, one which many male listeners could relate to. Chester even saves Dillon’s life at one point, then tells Matt he can’t tell anyone, as it would only embarrass them both.
 
Marshall Matt Dillon definitely and intentionally did not fit into the stereotypical western hero mold. His tactics were often roughshod and harsh and his words and personality often proved as sharp as his shooting. Gunsmoke writer John Meston used the program to break the white hat singing cowboy mold that so many other shows had latched onto. His goal, as he himself stated, was to obliterate that archetype and he used Matt Dillon to do it. Meston conceived and wrote Dillon as a man who at any moment could be as vicious as any of the outlaws he sought, and that made Dillon more realistic.
