Amanda Blake and Jim Arness Take An L&M Break on GUNSMOKE Set, Hollywood
September 08, 1958. Life Magazine back cover. An ad for L&M Cigarettes featuring Amanda Blake and Jim Arness from the extremely popular television western, GUNSMOKE. I liked GUNSMOKE back when I was a child and I still like GUNSMOKE today. The television show had a wonderful cast and really good scripts, and it had the gorgeous Jim Arness. I even like the old-time radio show version of GUNSMOKE that starred William Conrad as Matt Dillon. I started listening to old radio shows about twenty years ago and GUNSMOKE was one of the best - just as good as the T. V. show.
