Marshal Matt Dillon keeps the peace in rough and tumble Dodge City.
In Steven Spielberg's Duel (1971), Dennis Weaver's character stops at a filling station. As he drives off, the character who filled up his car is seen, from a distance, walking back towards the station, walking in a stiff-legged limp, like Weaver's Chester Goode character from this show.

U.S. Marshal Matt Dillon: What did you say his name was again, Festus?
Festus Haggen: I think its Sinclair... Jack Sinclair.
U.S. Marshal Matt Dillon: He's got no left hand?
Festus Haggen: That's right. Anyways, don't you think somebody ought to go reckon with him?
U.S. Marshal Matt Dillon: No!
Festus Haggen: Why...
The real Dodge City is on green rolling plains in SW Kansas. The setting of the series is clearly in a semi-arid, hilly/mountainous area which is clearly Southern California.
