Product Description
Gunsmoke is an American radio and television Western drama series created by director Norman MacDonnell and writer John Meston. The stories take place in and around Dodge City, Kansas, during the settlement of the American West. The radio version ran from 1952 to 1961, and John Dunning writes that among radio drama enthusiasts "Gunsmoke is routinely placed among the best shows of any kind and any time." The television version ran for 20 seasons from 1955 to 1975, and it is currently tied with Law & Order as the longest running primetime drama in U.S. television history. Until 2009, it was the longest running US primetime series of any kind, but The Simpsons passed that mark with its 21st season premiere. In the late 1940s, CBS chairman William S. Paley, a fan of The Adventures of Philip Marlowe radio serial, asked his programming chief, Hubell Robinson, to develop a hardboiled Western series, a show about a "Philip Marlowe of the Old West." Robinson instructed his West Coast CBS Vice-President, Harry Ackerman, who had developed the Philip Marlowe series, to take on the task. Ackerman and his scriptwriters, Mort Fine and David Friedkin, created an audition script called "Mark Dillon Goes to Gouge Eye". Two auditions were created in 1949. The first was very much like a hardboiled detective series and starred Rye Billsbury as Dillon; the second starred Straight Arrow actor Howard Culver in a more Western, lighter version of the same script. CBS liked the Culver version better, and Ackerman was told to proceed. But there was a complication. Culver's contract as the star of Straight Arrow would not allow him to do another Western series. The project was shelved for three years, when MacDonnell and Meston discovered it creating an adult Western series of their own.

I forgot to mention the other day how I spent some free time in Manhattan - on Tuesday I had a doctor's appointment in the late morning, and a dinner going on at 6:30, with not much to do in between, except for buying some new pants at the Big &... There was no way that I could spend 5 hours buying pants, so after a few other errands, I spent a few hours in Bryant Park, just reading half of a Star Wars novel. This is something I do so rarely that it almost felt like I was doing something wrong - but all things considered, it's not really a bad use of time, it's something I can only do when I have free time, which usually is not often at all. But since I'm still only working part time, perhaps I should do this more often, because it seems more productive than just spending time at home, taping and watching old movies, and re-arranging my watchlist schedule. AFTER: My instincts to switch films were solid - besides the Paris setting, this film shares something else with "The Great Race", and that's the fact that Jack Lemmon has a double role. Sort of - in "The Great Race", he played two different characters, one of whom was a European prince. In tonight's film, Lemmon's character disguises himself as a British Lord, but it's merely a costume to fool his girlfriend. Also, the sexual politics that were touched on in "The Great Race" get a further exploration here - after women's suffrage was such a hot-button item in the 1910's, the emancipation of women didn't really change all that much, if they're still... ) Lemmon plays Nestor Patou, an honest cop who falls for an attractive hooker, after raiding the hotel where she works. However, a number of notable Frenchmen were in the hotel at the time, including his superior officer, and no one clued in poor Nestor on how he was supposed to look the other way, so before long he's out of a job. And a prostitute needs a pimp, (or in this film's language, a "mec") so he sort of follows into the boyfriend/pimp role. That itself calls into question the sexual politics that the film puts forward - if she's a liberated woman, why does she need a pimp. And if she's so independent, why does she need to cry to get things to be the way she wants. I guess even in liberated France, it's two steps forward, and one step back. But also like "The Great Race", this film is much too long, clocking in at 2 hours and 24 minutes. Source: Honky's Movie Year
