Recapture the spirit of the American frontier with plain-talking Marshal Matt Dillon (James Arness), kindly saloon-keeper Miss Kitty (Amanda Blake), irascible Doc Adams (Milburn Stone) and tender-hearted but gullible Deputy Chester Goode (Dennis Weaver) as they uphold the law and bring respectability to the rough and tough town of Dodge City, Kansas.

All 39 episodes from Season One of this classic western action-drama are available together for the first time ever in this digitally resmastered 6-disc collection. So put your feet up, relax for a spell and journey back to Dodge with Gunsmoke: The First Season!

Editor's Note
James Arness vaulted into the annals of television history with his iconic portrayal of U.S. Marshall Matt Dillon in the long-running television Western GUNSMOKE. Armed with a quick draw and an even quicker wit, the principled and intelligent Marshall Dillon brought peace and righteousness to the lawless frontier of 1800s Dodge City with the help of his trusted deputy, Chester Goode (Dennis Weaver), his friend Doc Adams (Milburn Stone), and saloon keeper Miss Kitty (Amanda Blake). This collection presents the series' debut season in its entirety.

Ultimate DVD
4 stars out of 5 -- "The forerunner of all famous TV Westerns, this was essentially the first to aim the genre at adults..." 08/01/2007 p.117

Boston Phoenix 10 of 10
Gunsmoke was the most popular of the dozens of Westerns that flooded prime-time in the late '50s, and it still holds the record for the most number of episodes (635) among prime-time series with continuing characters. Many Gunsmoke knockoffs tried to distinguish themselves with gimmicks (such as a special type of gun), but these wore thin after a few episodes. Gunsmoke took a different approach that ensured its 20-year run: it explored "contemporary" themes, such as the rights of minorities, within a noncontroversial setting. Moving beyond black-and-white (hat) cliches also made Marshal Matt Dillon a deeper character, as he sometimes had to agonize over his decisions. - Robert David Sullivan
