[When asked about reports James Arness
had a great memory] That's true, he had a photographic memory and he wouldn't read a script, to come in on the first day of filming for Matt Dillon; and the director would say, "Tell 'em the story, you know, bad guys come into town, you're out of town, Festus goes dutchy, you come in, and beat the bad guy up and that's it". Basically, that's what happened ...
He studied art on a scholarship while in college and later was seen sketching during film and TV breaks. An accomplished western artist who enjoys exploring America's "Old West" and delving into typical everyday cowboy scenes of hitching horses or setting up camp, he specializes in watercolor.
