Brave gunslinger Marshal Matt Dillon (James Arness) presides over Dodge City, a Wild West town often overrun with the lawlessness of the frontier. The series follows Dillon as he plays peacekeeper in a locale afflicted by problems such as rustling, gunfights and brawling. When Dillon isn't fighting for peace and justice, he's trying to win over the usually ambiguous affection of Kitty (Amanda Blake), known around Dodge as "The Marshal's Woman."

This show, along with The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (1955), helped launch the great era of the TV western. Westerns became so popular on TV that by the end of the 1950s there would be as many as 40 of them airing in prime time.
