  • This one is basically Dillon versus Stobo. The two giants face off. Which one was in fact the taller man?

    7.1
    Stobo, played by Buddy Baer actually stood 6 foot 6 and three quarter inches, in other words about the exact height of Arness. Stobo was given slight heel arches which you can see in the episode if you watch if closely to make him more ominous and threatening. He outweighed Arness by 100 pounds and so was a much larger man, but was in fact not taller. Arness himself was very huge, and toweringly tall, even taller than Buddy Baer. Gunsmoke had actors as tall as Arness, but never taller unless made so by lifts in the shoes. Watch carefully when Arness faces off with Baer at at his campfire when splashes hot water on his face, and you can see Buddy's heels on his boots. They are a solid inch taller than normal boot wear.

    A great episode though.moreless
