What is so unreal is that the characters are well shaven and look so cowboy neat. Look at old photos to see how they really looked.

On Bonanza, the whole town wore flannel shirts and Stetson hats, right off the wardrobe rack. Little Joe wore the same green shirt, Hoss the same tan vest, and Adam the same black shirt and pants in every episode. Ben Cartwright had more money than anyone in the state but wouldn't buy his boys new clothes. What a cheap bass turd.

Saturday nights only, and usually with second-hand water. I have often wondered what the soiled doves smelled like back then.

However he did spend a fortune keeping those clothes freshly laundered.

What fascinated the most about the show was that through 431 episodes, the Cartwright family must have killed about 300 people. All in self defense or dire necessity of course. Despite this incredibly high total, none of them was ever arrested for murder, save for several times when one of them would be falsely accused of murder and forced to stand trial. (And of course during the trial, the rest of the Cartwrights would find the actual killer...and kill him, but not before he confessed.)

I loved Bonanza when it first started then got sick fed up with every woman that one of them fell in love with met an untimely death, we all knew it wouldnt last... and the stories were all the same.. this is why Pernell Roberts left , he was so fed up with the scripts...

The Sharon Stone/Titanic-kid movie, directed by the "Evil Dead" guy? Are you joking?

John Wesley Hardin was a truly hard case, probably a psychopath, but also intelligent. In addition to all that he was good at killing, he'd done it 27 times. Were I tasked with apprehending the man I might have done the same thign.
