He smoked for years and in 1977 underwent an operation for oral cancer. He died in 1989 and there was some confusion as to the cause of his death. Some reports say she died of cancer while others say she was linked to AIDS.

(AP) _ Amanda Blake, who played Miss Kitty in the long-running “Gunsmoke” series, died of complications from AIDS, not cancer, as previously reported, her doctor said on Monday. Blake had throat cancer, but “that’s not why she died,” says Dr. Lou Nishimura, intern in Sacramento.
In the 20 years of CBS’s Gunsmoke series, the numbers range from 138 men and seven women to 303 people. If you add those that US Marshal Matt Dillon has limited himself to in television movies, the total is 407. Some of these villains may have just been injured and others may have died from their injuries.
Gunsmoke has been in operation for 20 years. Marshall Dillon (James Arness), for example, rode several horses. The most memorable and longest in recent years was a beautiful fat goat in goatskin. Buck was an American Quarter Horse or a mixed breed that was primarily Quarter Horse.
