GUNSMOKE: An American Institution

Written by Ben Costello, Foreword by Jim Byrnes, and Introduction by Jon Voight

Starting on September 10, 1955, and continuing for more than 600 episodes over the next twenty years, "Gunsmoke" ruled the airwaves. Never in the history of television had a show so captured the hearts of both youngsters and adults. Each week, Marshal Matt Dillon and his friends would face a new threat to the peace and lawfulness of their frontier home of Dodge City, Kansas—and each week, goodness and determination prevailed. It was the perfect antidote for a country still emerging from the darkness of World War II.

In recognition of this, the show’s golden anniversary, author Ben Costello has produced a remarkable testament to the on-screen characters and off-screen individuals who made the story lines come alive. With lead performer biographies, hundreds of episode and behind-the-scenes photographs, complete episode logs, updates on all the surviving cast members, and interviews with the show’s luminaries, GUNSMOKE: An American Institution is a favorite for fans and historians alike.

Paperback, perfect-bound. 672 pages.
