The Passing of James Arness (1923-2011)

Aw, the little lady wants to kill some giant ants, too?

We at In the Mouth of Dorkness are saddened by the loss of actor James Arness.  He may be famous for his role in the extremely long running Gunsmoke, but this Dork will always remember him as the dashing lead in Them! and of course, as title creature in The Thing From Another World.  The brother of the late Peter Graves, he turned in a ton of solid film performances before moving primarily to TV in the late 50s.  If you haven't seen his work, you're missing out.  If you haven't seen Them!, the first thing you need to do tomorrow is find a copy and watch it.
