BOTH CHESTER AND FESTUS

I couldn't choose between Chester and Festus.
They were both great in the roll they played on Gunsmoke.
The world lost some great actors when the Gunsmoke crew passed away. I'm 73 yrs. old and still watch the Gunsmoke re-runs.

Which one to choose?? Decisions, decisions!

Thinking back over them today, I'd choose Festus. For one thing, he stayed with the show longer than Chester did and 2) he seemed to be more help to "Mr. Dillon" than did Chester. Dennis Weaver did a LOT of good in other ways while on this earth (check out his website; just Google Dennis Weaver/Chester Goode, I would imagine. I hope that takes you to the website showing his home - in the shape of a boat (I think) and isolated in what looks like a forest. He designed and helped build it himself!! Very intelligent man!
