Not in the TV series, for sure. Probably not in the 5 made-for-TV movies in the 1980s and 90s, either, but I'm not certain.

My Mistake!

according to http://comp.uark.edu/~tsnyder/gunsmoke/tidbits/mattnkitty/index.HTML

there was one kiss, but they don't say which episode it was in.

Matt and kitty did share one kiss, on the cheek.from kitty to Matt. on the only Christmas episode ever filmed that i know of, in 73 or 74, KAT....

Marshal Matt Dillon never married on Gunsmoke. He was involved with Miss Kitty Russell, owner of the Long Branch Saloon, but they never married. Check out Toby Keith's song "Shoulda Been a Cowboy" in which he talks about Marshal Dillon & Miss Kitty.

It was believed that the audiences would not approve of their relationship, since Miss Kitty was a saloon girl.

I believe that they did not. In fact, they even had follow movies where Matt is alone and was never with Miss Kitty.

No one. The only lady on the show was "Miss Kitty" and they were just good friends.

Amanda Blake (Miss Kitty) and James Arness (Matt Dillon) .

She kissed HIM on the cheek in one episode but that's all we ever saw on camera.

She was there from the beginning

I am partial to "Miss Kitty" aka Miss Kitty of the old western series "Gunsmoke".

She was a former Hooker and a current Madam. Where as Matt Dillon was the Marshal. The writers decided to keep the relationship at a friendship level. Kitty dated other guys, she was allowed to kiss other guys on the show, but could never kiss the Marshal. Matt Dillon never got angry because he knew his relationship was about friendship and nothing more. Due to the dangerous nature of his job, Matt Dillon could not be tied down in a serious relationship.

Miss Kitty was in love with Marshall Dillon and he was in love with her, but for some tragic reason, their love would remain forever unrequited. It wasn't proper for the Marshall to be seen a-courtin' that saloon-gal, Miss Kitty...

Kitty gave Matt a kiss on the cheek at the end of one of the Christmas shows. That's the only kiss between them, but as Jim Arness says, "It counts!"

As far as I know Kitty Wells never was an actress in Gunsmoke. There was a Miss Kitty played be Amanda Blake. Kitty Wells was a Country Music singer in the 50's, 60's and 70's.

They didn't - she just wasn't there when the 20th season started.

Amanda Blake (February 20, 1929 - August 16, 1989)

The character on Gunsmoke was named Kitty Russell, played by actress Amanda Blake.

Amanda Blake, 1929 - 1989 (Miss Kitty from Gunsmoke.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanda_Blake

Country singer Toby Keith summed it up well. In his song I Should Have Been A Cowboy he sings Marshall Dillon never hung his saddle at Kitty's place. There was always chemistry between Marshall Dillion and Miss Kitty but as much as America wanted their romance to bloom, it is usually a death sentence for a series to bring a budding love into full fruition. So they just stayed friends and kept the romantic tension alive right up to the last episode. It was the same story for their off screen relationship. They were just good friends.

Her Real Name is Kitty Jung

"Gunsmoke" revolved around the Marshall Matt Dillon as he brought law and order to Dodge City . Many of the episodes involved his deputy and his relationship with Miss Kitty who ran the Longbranch Saloon . The series had such notable stars as Harrison Ford , Charles Bronson , Robert Culp , Tom Skerritt , Yaphet Kotto , Leonard Nimoy , William Shatner , and many others .
