Q: Will the Aurness brothers ever make a movie together?

A: In the June 28, 1998 issue of Parade Magazine, there is a Peter Graves interview by James Brady.

And how's his brother, Gunsmoke star James Arness?

"Happily retired and living near us in L.A." said Graves. "He was badly wounded in Anzio [Italy in World War II] and has fits with his knees. Can't climb on and off horses anymore. I sent him a contemporary script I though we might do together, but he said 'I only feel comfortable in the 19th century.'"

Note: Peter Aurness chose the name Peter Graves from his mother's maiden name.
