    James Arness (Gunsmoke) and Peter Graves (Mission Impossible) are
    brothers. If you listen real close, they have the exact some voice pitch
    and accent.

    James Arness played the monster from outer space in a classic Sci-Fi
    movie, a real "screamer" in it's day. Name the movie.

    William Conrad. He later narrated "The Fugitive" and "Bullwinkle" and
    played "Cannon", Nero Wolfe" and "Jake and the Fatman". The reason James
    Arness got the role of Matt Dillon on TV was Conrad got too fat to play him.

    the same guy who provided the Narrators voice on the Rocky
    and Bullwinkle show. The Fat Man himself.

    So, my question to your radio folks is who was
    longest-running and best known radio incarnation of Simon
    Templar?

    Well, there are those who would lay down, in ecstasy, at the thought of

    For me the answers are "yes" and "no", respectively. Presumably
    your use of the word "we" means that for you both answers are "yes"?

    That's correct. The family name is actually "Aurness". Although
    "Mission Impossible" wasn't listed, Graves had also appeared in
    "Fury", which was listed.

    The full title is actually "The Thing from Another World" (from
    1951), although it's commonly called simply "The Thing", as here.

    > first "scary" movie. Had nightmares for weeks after that! What do I

    I thought about asking the same question, but since James Arness
    was part of the answer to one of the questions I decided not to
    include another question about him in the same set.

    Who was offered the role of Matt Dillon before Arness, but turned
