2 Meta Moments In ONE Gunsmoke Episode...

In the episode of "Gunsmoke" that aired on RetroplexHD this evening... two things stood out as ironic...

1) Doc Adams (Milbourne Stone) was in Jonas' General Store, was waited on by Mr. Jonas assistant, played by Howard McNear(Floyd the barber in "The Andy Griffith Show")... Howard McNear played the role of "Doc Adams" in the radio version of "Gunsmoke".

2) Ms. Kitty told Matt, "I wish I knew what it was like to be a man for just one hour." Amanda Blake, in real life, was well known as "batting for the other team"...
