Waiting for a delivery Monday I was channel surfing and fell onto an episode of Gunsmoke.  The show as on for 20 years and EVERYONE watched it.  Miss Kitty ran the Long Branch Saloon and carried a torch for Marshall Matt Dillon.

Wondering what ever became of the cast,  I did a casual Google search.

Amanda Blake died in August 1989.  She was only 60 years old.  Her husband had a wandering eye, and he caught and gave her AIDS.
