Peter Graves vs James Arness

It's a sibling smackdown!

On Now
Does this scene prove that Matt and Kitty did in fact share a kiss on Gunsmoke?
Up Next:

If you thought your family had some intense sibling rivalry, take some time to look into the Aurness family. "Aurness" was the actual family name of real-life brothers James "Matt Dillon" Arness and Peter "Jim Phelps" Graves. Two TV greats sprung forth from the same household. 

Surely you can tell them apart by looking at them, but how well do you really know these two brothers? We'll ask you some trivia questions in your chance to prove you know the score in this Brawl of the Brothers.

Be sure to share your thoughts and your score in the comments section below!

Does anyone know if Peter Graves narrated the introduction in the later years of Gunsmoke? It sure sounds like him to me, and I can't find any info on line.

The quizz about Peter Graves and his Brother James Arness
I know more about James Arness than Peter Graves and I only knew Peter Graves as in Mission Impossible and not more I know about Peter Graves
