Dodge City is synonymous with the Wild West. It again lived up to that cowboy reputation this past weekend by hosting a reunion of some of the actors from the iconic TV show “Gunsmoke,” the longest-running network drama in television history. Fans of westerns and 1950s television swarmed Dodge City over the weekend to celebrate the show's 60th anniversary.  From KMUW in Wichita, Abigail Wilson reports.
