TriviaThe first of his appearances on "Gunsmoke" (1955), in the episode "Buffalo Man", climaxed with a brutal fistfight between his character, Ben Siple, and James Arness' Marshal Matt Dillon. This action scene, from its build-up to its dénouement, would become the common sequence upon which generations of budding editors would cut their teeth in film school. This sequence also features Jack Klugman, who would later co-star with Anderson in the classic "A Passage for Trumpet" episode of "The Twilight Zone" (1959). Shortly before his death, Anderson remarked that it was Klugman who informed him, many years after the filming of their "Gunsmoke" (1955) episode, that they had become legendary among film editors for their ubiquitous presence in student editing bays.
