A Galtsbum RggHter-Moil, Golesburo, ID, Friday, Aug. 3, 1973 Only Passel of TV Shoo touts I J, By DICK KLEINER I HOLLYWOOD (NBA) - For " "th« firit time since Hopa- kflf Cuddy iioppcd along the TV acreeni (here is only one Tte Lively Artt western on the TV schedule ^thta fill. Such i happening is " downright un -American. The one survivor, of course, is CBS's Gunsmoke, which somehow has managed to last for 19 years. In A couple of seasons it legally will become an adult. As it is, it is old enough to vote. For t time this summer Gunsmoke was the only show in town which was shooting. During the writers' strike, Gunsmoke' managed to film because there was a bunch of scripts left over from last season. I Visit The 120th Annual Knox County Fair $\NING OVER TOS 1661 N. HENDERSON ST.

TILL MIDNIGHT) ^v 1487 N. Henderson St. Producer Leonard Katzman -he's • rookie, only three years with the show — said there Were 17 or 18 scripts. They picked the best 12 to film. Even then they had a problem. Both Katzmen and executive producer John Mantley are members of the Writers' Guild, to they were barred from doing any rewrites which are essential during filming. "We shot them all-long/' Katzman says, "and we'll rewrite when we edit and cut." So Gunsmoke is one show which will be able to answer the gong for the beginning of the season. There are a dozen shows in the can. As has been the program's custom for the last few years, these dozen hours are virtually an anthology series. You may not be consciously aware of it but Gunsmoke has changed in the last several seasons. WHEN THE antiviolence crusade began Gunsmoke readjusted its philosophy to conform. It played down Matt Dillon's manly maneuvers and played up character studies of guest stars. The result is a series which tells tales that are pretty much universal, with the western setting merely a backdrop. Because Matt Dillon (Jim Arness) was the symbol of violence, he's become almost a part-time performer. Katzman says the current formula is to focus on the marshal perhaps six or eight times during the season. In the others, he's very light, al- Ken Curtis, left, and James Arness ... the 19th season though he's always present to some degree. "Then we have a few Kitty shows, some Doc shows, some Festus shows, a couple of Newly shows," Katzman says. Fortunately for Arness, this corresponds with his own wishes. He can spend more time off the set than on and that's the way he wants it. Katzman says the show pushes heavy on the first few programs each season to recapture its audience and fight the stiff competition of the new shows. So the first four or five are big and expensive, usually shot on location. "TO BALANCE our budget," he says, "we do a few 'bottle' shows — that's our word for programs which are inexpensive and require only small sets. That way, we come out even at the end of the season —at least, that's what we strive for." The show has survived one major cast change, one major illness and the vagaries of public taste for almost two decades. It looks like it can go on for a few more.

They travel from Kansas to Missouri fa search of a fast buck. The PG rating is taicked on for assorted seamy aspects of the plot and occasional foul words. John Wayne is CAHTLL, UNITED STATES MARSHAL. He plays a character who seems familiar because it's the same one you see in aM his films.
