Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE 2 Leftover scripts enable Gunsmoke to carry on "To balance our he says, "we do a few 'bottle' shows that's our word for programs which are sive 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 pub- lic taste for almost two dec- ades. It looks like it can go OB for a few more. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD For the first time since Hopalong Cassidy hopped along the TV screens there is only one western on the TV schedule this fall. Such a happening is downright un- American. The one survivor, of course, fe CBS' Gunsmoke, which somehow has managed to last for 19 years. In a couple of sea- sons it legally will become an adult. As it is, it is old enough to vote. For a time tnis summer Gun- ;moke was the only show in iown which was shooting. Dur- ng the writers' strike, Gun- smoke managed to film because there was a bunch of scripts left over from last season. Producer Leonard ae's a rookie, only three years with the there were 17 or 18 scripts. They picked the best 12 to film. Even then they had a problem. Both Katz- man and executive producer John Mantley are members of the Writers' Guild, so they were barred from doing any re- writes which are essential dur- ing filming. "We shot them all Katzman says, "and we'll re- write 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 virtu- ally an anthology series. You may not be consciously aware of it but Gunsmoke has changed in the last several seasons. When the antiviolence cru- sade began, Gunsmoke readjus- ted 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 pret- ty much universal, with the western setting merely a back- drop. Because Matt Dillon (Jim Ar- ness) was the symbol of vio- lence, he's become almost a part-time performer. Katzman says the current formula is to focus on the marshal perhap six or eight times during the season. In the others, he's very light, although he's always pres- ent to some degree. "Then we have a few Kitty shows, some Doc shows, some Festus shows, a couple of New- ly Katzman says. Fortunately for Arness, this corresponds with Ms own wish- es. He can spend more time off the set than on and that's the way he wants it. Katzman says the show push- es heavy on the first few pro- grams each season to recap- ture 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.
