The James Arness April Event


From War Hero to Hollywood Hero – A Month-long Celebration of James Arness!

A legitimate war hero who earned a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart, among other commendations, James Arness put his real-life leadership experience into the characters he played. This month we pay tribute to his roles as US Marshal Matt Dillon on Gunsmoke and as Zebulon Macahan in How the West Was Won.
