About This Quiz

As a television show, "Gunsmoke" ran for 20 years, but you may not have known that it was a radio show before and during some of that same time. Many have said that the show stood out from the others in the way that it remained more subtle and more faithful to the pace and energy of life out on the prairie. Excellent sound effects and a strong cast of characters brought the drama to life and made the listener and watcher feel like they were there.

Are you the heroic Marshal Matt Dillion who is honest, reliable, and willing to do whatever it takes to bring civility and safety to the Wild West? Maybe you relate more to Dr. Galen Adams, who has seen more than his fair share of carnage and suffering in this life. On the other hand, perhaps you relate more to Miss Kitty, who runs the town's saloon. In her, you'll find someone with feelings of love for the hero but struggles with society's judgment of her profession and the reality of the hero's dangerous work. And yet, if you find yourself preferring to enjoy life and keep things simple, Festus Haggen should fit you just about perfectly.
