Are these Best Picture Oscar winners or episodes of Gunsmoke?

These award-winning films sound like they could happen in Dodge City and more than a few Gunsmoke episodes have enough high-stakes drama for the Oscars.

Gunsmoke lasted through many eras of big-screen Westerns – the heroic epics of the Fifties, the spaghetti Westerns of the Sixties and the sometimes darker, sometimes funnier takes on the genre in the Seventies.

Marshal Matt Dillon’s adventures on television were just as, if not more, compelling than many cowboy movies. The titles of the more than 600 Gunsmoke episodes reflect the wide variety of stories told on the iconic series.

Another wide variety of entertainment titles you may or may not remember? Movies that won Best Picture at the Oscars. Try to tell the difference between Gunsmoke episodes and Oscar-winning movies in this quiz!
