What The Hemp Happened to Miss Kitty on Gunsmoke?

Birds are chirping outside my windows. It is 6AM and dark. It is Winter. It is cold. WTF?



Oh, I did it again. I cursed and/or cussed. Using an abbreviation, OMG, doesn't make it any cleaner. I am so sick of cussing. I think I have ramped it up since my cussing Aunt Violet died, but that don't make it right. It just ain't, Matthew! Uh-oh, now I am using improper English--thanks Gunsmoke and Festus.



Speaking of Gunsmoke, what happened to Miss Kitty? All of a sudden she is no longer at her saloon and some old woman is there! And here is the Twilight Zone moment: Everyone acts like nothing has changed! The love of Matt's life, almost twenty years and puff! Gone.
So, naturally I had to go to the WWW and find out where she went! Pitiful.

The actress who played Miss Kitty, Amanda Blake, died years ago at the age of SIXTY! (I mean, when was she ever not 60?)

Course I started watching Gunsmoke last year and all the episodes are 1974, in fact, I apparently JUST watched the last one made on Friday! How is this fair? Life is so not fair. Anyway, Amanda didn't want to do, refused to do the script about Miss Kitty being raped and left to die in the desert. The show's brilliant staff (NOT) told her do it or hit the road, yes, after almost 20 years, and she HIT IT!

Then, the genius (not) network decided Gunsmoke was not reaching the demographics they wanted (uh, sorry, people like me) and replaced it with The Rookies, which lasted a few seasons. Gunsmoke was still in the top ten most watched shows at the time! Drat my youthful distaste for old 50-somethings playing cowboys---I basically whacked my future self. Probably most of the bad shows, crummy food, and cheaply made products can be blamed on me. Sorry, me.

Where was I? Oh yes, Amanda Blake died at 60 from mouth cancer, though her death certificate lists the immediate cause as cardiopulmonary arrest due to liver failure and CMV hepatitis, but she was a long time big smoker who, after getting cancer, went on attack of the cigarettes industries, testifying in congress.

She was married and divorced four times (my gaydar is on alert), started PAWS with her funding, and when she first was "discovered," they called her the next Greer Garson...but Gunsmoke came along and the rest is TV history. I guess back then, in the olden days, like Darrin on Bewitched, just switching actors without fanfare was deemed okay. Sigh.

The good news is I think Gunsmoke will now have to start reruns from the beginning and those are always the best! So, my point is: we, as the new civilized society we have decided to be, need to stop cursing so much. If Kitty and Matt never did it, her in a saloon and him getting shot by mean ol' cowboys, then we can at least be as language-civil as we thought we once were.

Then, the genius (not) network decided Gunsmoke was not reaching the demographics they wanted (uh, sorry, people like me) and replaced it with The Rookies, which lasted a few seasons. Gunsmoke was still in the top ten most watched shows at the time! Drat my youthful distaste for old 50-somethings playing cowboys---I basically whacked my future self. Probably most of the bad shows, crummy food, and cheaply made products can be blamed on me. Sorry, me.

Where was I? Oh yes, Amanda Blake died at 60 from mouth cancer, though her death certificate lists the immediate cause as cardiopulmonary arrest due to liver failure and CMV hepatitis, but she was a long time big smoker who, after getting cancer, went on attack of the cigarettes industries, testifying in congress.

She was married and divorced four times (my gaydar is on alert), started PAWS with her funding, and when she first was "discovered," they called her the next Greer Garson...but Gunsmoke came along and the rest is TV history. I guess back then, in the olden days, like Darrin on Bewitched, just switching actors without fanfare was deemed okay. Sigh.

The good news is I think Gunsmoke will now have to start reruns from the beginning and those are always the best! So, my point is: we, as the new civilized society we have decided to be, need to stop cursing so much. If Kitty and Matt never did it, her in a saloon and him getting shot by mean ol' cowboys, then we can at least be as language-civil as we thought we once were.

Birds are chirping outside my windows. It is 6AM and dark. It is Winter. It is cold. WTF?



Oh, I did it again. I cursed and/or cussed. Using an abbreviation, OMG, doesn't make it any cleaner. I am so sick of cussing. I think I have ramped it up since my cussing Aunt Violet died, but that don't make it right. It just ain't, Matthew! Uh-oh, now I am using improper English--thanks Gunsmoke and Festus.



Speaking of Gunsmoke, what happened to Miss Kitty? All of a sudden she is no longer at her saloon and some old woman is there! And here is the Twilight Zone moment: Everyone acts like nothing has changed! The love of Matt's life, almost twenty years and puff! Gone.
So, naturally I had to go to the WWW and find out where she went! Pitiful.

The actress who played Miss Kitty, Amanda Blake, died years ago at the age of SIXTY! (I mean, when was she ever not 60?)

Course I started watching Gunsmoke last year and all the episodes are 1974, in fact, I apparently JUST watched the last one made on Friday! How is this fair? Life is so not fair. Anyway, Amanda didn't want to do, refused to do the script about Miss Kitty being raped and left to die in the desert. The show's brilliant staff (NOT) told her do it or hit the road, yes, after almost 20 years, and she HIT IT!
