    There is actually a biography just out about Glenn Ford’s life (I believe it is the first biography every written about him) written by his son Peter Ford called Glenn Ford: A Life.

    I am working on it right now, it is quite interesting, it uses the a lot of what Glenn Ford wrote in his personal diaries as well as interviews with him when he was alive and his co-stars.

    @ Richard Elden,….I, for one, and I would say that many Americans here would RESENT your comment about Gunsmoke being “crap”. You are a 19 year English person from the other side of the pond…..please grow up. Thank you very kindly.

    Gunsmoke was propaganda put out by the elite to justify government. Many times Matt Dillion will say “I didn’t kill him, the law did.” and this will be just minutes after we see him pull the trigger on his gun and shoot the person. This guy was in total denial using “the law” to justify himself being nothing more than a serial killer.

    @cowboyborn Arness overacted all the time. It’s amazing people actually watched this crap.

    @djf750 You must have not watched a lot of Gun Smoke. I have seen him winded, knocked out, shot, and many other things. The man was 6’ 7” and built like a tank, he can knock most people out quick. I did not watch Gun Smoke for the real world experience. I watched it for the good guy beats bad guy story.
    I think it is disrespectful when someone like you, trashes a man who just died, especially in a place paying tribute to him.

    God rest James Arness.

    @cowboyborn nothing on that show was realistic (maybe the horses and wagons) it is typical “hollywood reality” Dillon gets in a fight in the street with a guy with a knife, kicks the crap out of him, is not even winded or upset in any way and neither has a mark on them or broken hands from punching.

    hollywood nonsense. by the way, kitty and her girls were prostitutes, yet in the show just nice girls who “talked” to the horny cowboys.

    Arness was the same character in all his movies and series.

  11. cowboyborn says:

    @djf750 James Arnes not a good actor? He was one of the best. That is why his show lasted 20 years. He was believable; he talked and acted like a real person. When he said or did something, you believed it. These actors that people like you believe are good, overact and are not believable. I think you are just a jerk. If you don’t like him, keep it to yourself.

    @bobszetics1….thank you bob and it was sincere.

    @lanetemple VERY WELL PUT

  14. RichardElden says:

    @Soulthinker2007 He did.

  15. lanetemple says:

    May you Rest in Peace, Jim., and I will give you the classic Irish toast: Jim, ” may you be in Heaven a half-hour before the Devil knew you were dead” By the way, don’t forget to go the Oasis Saloon in Dodge and have many drinks with The Duke, Pappy Ford, John Meston, Bernard McEveety, and Jesse Hibbs.

  16. djf750 says:

    @RichardElden it was good in the early years…then pretty bad for the most part. And Jim Arness was not a very good actor.

    The best thing that has come along . I bet those indians he was always killing off – disagree

  18. rachelperry100 says:

    RIP Marshal Dillon!

  19. Soulthinker2007 says:

    Arness would be missed. I wonder why Wayne did not appear in a episode of Gunsmoke during its 20 years on the air?

  20. dwalex97209 says:

    How right the Duke was about Jim Arness. Jim will always be Marshall Matt Dillon- just like his younger brother Peter Graves will always be Jim Phelps (Mission: Impossible). RIP and Godspeed, Marshall Dillon (and his alter ego, James Arness).

    rip james arness

  22. ChrisK529 says:

    RIP James Arness – say hello to your brother, Peter Graves.

    Gunsmoke was crap.

    @TheGutterRatz Fuck you

  25. boricua4265 says:

    @Donald6899 There was a good reason for it and if you did your research you would know why instead of just jumping on the bandwagon of false rumors. John Wayne was a Proud American that was bashed for being Pro-War while others were running off to Canada. Remember Freedom doesn’t come free ….. and think about it while you are eating your hotdogs and hamburgers outside in you backyard! You want to know why John Wayne didn’t fight in the war? Go take the time to find it yourself!
