Thanks for posting these! I never missed an opportunity to watch "Gunsmoke" until the much later years.

Burt Reynolds was actually born in LANSING, MICHIGAN. He like to claim to be born in Waycross because he thought it would enhance his "Smokey and the Bandit" persona as a good ole Southern boy! :rotfl

I enjoy watching Gunsmoke, but I hate that Miss Kitty and Matt never married.
