(Ark.) Cburler Newi .-.Tuwdiy, September », 1969 - ft|« fit* Color TV Gets A Shot at Xjuhsmoke' ByBOBTHO..MAS. .. . AP Movie-Television Writer . HOLLWOOD Y(AP) - Color- set viewers will be able to recognize for the first time tonight that Matt Dillon's eyes are deep blue and Kitty's hair is orangey- red. : The beginning of the 12th season of "Gunsmoke" brings the CBS Western to the home screen in color for the first time. But viewers won't be seeing any splashes of chartreuse and fuchsia, or any other bright colors, for that matter. That's the dictum of Philip Leacocfc, who has been guiding the destiny of the long-run series. .,, Says the producer :"When it •was announced that we were going to color, some of the people on the show said we could now repaint all the sets brilliant colors, put bright green curtains in the Long Branch saloon and new dresses on the girls. I said no. "Oh, maybe the Long Branch is a bit brighter, but otherwise Dodge City will look pretty much the same. It would be easy to lose the dusty atmosphere on the town by going wild on color. But we'd also be destroying the essential quality of ;he show." Leacock is a jealous guardian of "Gunsmoke's" success, and his stars now appreciate his efforts. That wasn't always true. When he took over the show three, years ago, the performers eyed him with suspicion. After all, what right had he, an Englishman, to assume command on a basically Ameri can saga? 'We had some clashes at first," : admitted Leacock, discussing his relationships with James Arness, Amanda Blake and Milburn Stone. "These people' care so much about the show and their characters thai they are suspicious of anyone who might .want to tamper with them. I-had to prove to them that I cared just as much as they did." How much longer can "Guns- moke" last? "That's entirely up to the ac tors," Leacock remarked. "I 1 can probably continue as long as they are willing to stay."
