Trivia:
James Arness and Milburn Stone are the only two regulars to stay with the show for its entire 20-year, 635-episode duration on CBS. There was one brief exception, when Stone was replaced by another doctor while he was recovering from a heart attack. That was Pat Hingle, who played Dr. John Chapman for 6 episodes in 1971.See more »
