Remembering James Arness

James Arness: May 26, 1923 – June 3, 2011.

There are two people in Hollywood I wanted to meet and never did: James Arness and John Wayne.

Jim’s birthday is May 26 and my birthday is May 25. I always liked him ever since I watched him on Gunsmoke. He inspired me by his acting and his excellent performances. He will be missed, not just by me, but by everybody. My sympathy goes to the Arness family.

A good man is gone but never forgotten. I will miss you, Jim.

Yours truly,
