(Condensed) "Good evening. My name's Wayne.
Some of you may have seen me before. I hope so. I've been kicking around
Hollywood a long time. I've made a lot of pictures out here. All kinds.
Some of them have been westerns and that's what I'm here to tell you about
tonight. A western. A new television show called Gunsmoke. When
I first heard about the show Gunsmoke, I knew there was only one
man to play in it. James Arness. He's a young fellow, and maybe new to
some of you. But I've worked with him and I predict he'll be a big star.
And now I'm proud to present Gunsmoke."
