Watching Lorne Greene play anyone but Ben Cartwright is just odd. Especially on a show like the love boat.

ConnectiCon is pleased to announce two more Guests of Honor, Alan Oppenheimer and Noah Hathaway, will be at ConnectiCon 2014! Dozens more are on the way! Alan Oppenheimer is recognized as the voice of many characters, often for Filmation in the 1970s and 1980s, such as Mighty Mouse, Ming the Merciless on Flash Gordon, the Overlord on BlackStar, and Skeletor, Man-At-Arms and Mer-Man from Filmation's 1980s cartoon He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Other notable voice roles include Thundarr the Barbarian, Vanity on The Smurfs, Rhinokey and Crock from The Wuzzles and Falkor, Gmork, Rockbiter, and the Narrator from 1984's The NeverEnding Story. In the early 1990s, Oppenheimer was the voice of Merlin in The Legend of Prince Valiant. He also performed various supporting roles in various incarnations of Scooby- Doo. He took over the voice of Roger Smith's butler Norman Burg in the second season of The Big O. Oppenheimer also worked on The Transformers, most notably as two contrasting characters, the pacifis ...
*** Hathaway had already been partying with Lorne Greene &. Dirk Benedict so not sure Oracle breast would phase him at all.
Lorne Greene was like the Grandad of the fleet, was a true leader of the fleet
That's why I prefer new-Adama; Lorne Greene's version always came across as infallible thus rather dull in comparison.

Right. Not the New Coke Battlestar Galactica that the kids like, but the OG one with Lorne Greene.

Just caught a reference to Lorne Greene on Bomb Girls!
Bonanza Casting Lorne Greene Ben David Dortort originally considered Lee J. Cobb to portray Ben Cartwright in early 1959. However, the reply from Cobb's agent was that he "didn't do television" and a dead end. Ironically, Cobb had a change of mind and signed on to portray a wealthy rancher in the NBC TV-series based on Owen Wister's "The Virginian" in 1962, which ran for almost a decade on NBC. Some three days after first seeing him, David Dortort met Lorne Greene at a party, and he was mildly impressed with him, perhaps hiring him for the role of Ben Cartwright. Dortort's wife, Rose, insisted Lorne was indeed Ben Cartwright, and David finally agreed and went to see him when he was shooting an episode of "Wagon Train". He was impressed with how Lorne held his own with Ward Bond (who he had considered to play Ben, and how he also liked to bully the other actors on the set), and that was what finally decided him to cast Lorne Greene as Ben Cartwright. Dortort recalled of Lorne, "Lorne not only dominat ...

Watching the 1969-71 seasons of "Bonanza" on Encore Westerns. Any Virginian fans notice the "Bonanza" producers gave Candy the same costume as the Virginian? :) As for the episodes, there are a few original storylines that stand out and many average episodes with stock characters and situations. One of the more ludicrous episodes was the engagement of aging Ben Cartwright (Lorne Greene) and young Mariette Hartley's character. Watching Greene kiss Hartley was cringe worthy. What were the writer's thinking ?
Tribeca Film Festival preview: LI Williams and Bryan Cranston will be there. And Eva Longoria. And Michael Douglas. And Robin Roberts, Aaron Sorkin, Morgan Spurlock and Ron Howard. And Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield, probably in neutral corners. And thousands and thousands of New York-area moviegoers, who are seldom neutral about anything. There will certainly be some stargazing once the 13th edition of the Tribeca Film Festival opens Wednesday night, promising much discussion about individual movies, the future of cinema and life as we know it. But while hot and cold running celebrities have always been among Tribeca's accessories (the stars mentioned above are involved in various "Tribeca Talks"), it's also a festival for civilians: Unlike Cannes or Sundance, it isn't a festival primarily for industry or press, but for people who arrive by subway, get excited about new movies, actually buy tickets, wait on lines, often enough in a cold spring rain. What they'll see when they get inside? A total of 89 ...

Pretty sure it was all Lorne Greene.
Ever been to a Hollywood movie premiere? I did. At The Chinese Theater in 1974 "EARTHQUAKE" in SENSOROUND! It was cool. There were speakers under the seats and when a "tremblor" (or the spectacular LONG "big shock") hit, you could feel it, it was loud even the big chandeliers inside swayed a bit! Women were screaming in the theater! It was great. The first ensemble disaster movie and we saw the cast there! Charlton Heston, Ava Gardner, George Kennedy, Lorne Greene, Geneviève Bujold, Richard Roundtree, Victoria Principal, Walter Matthau. It won 2 oscars for(of course) Best Sound Mixing & a Special Achievement for Special Effects. Music by JOHN WILLIAMS got a nomination.

Had there actually been a live action version of Thunderbirds in the 1960's, a fine cast would have been Mike Connors (as Scott), Ray Danton (Virgil), Fabian (Alan), Lorne Greene (Jeff), Dorothy Provine (Lady Penelope), Richard Jaeckel (sp? as Gordon), Nick Adams (John), Wende Wagner (Tin-Tin), Torin Thatcher (Hood), James Hong (in old-age make-up to play Kyrano), and Terry Thomas as Parker. Provine and Thomas play what are essentially Lady Penelope and Parker (complete with gadget-laden Rolls Royce) in KISS THE GIRLS AND MAKE THEM DIE, which also stars Mike Connors. That's what got me to thinking about it!
Did you know that on while acting on Bonanza, Dan Blocker, Lorne Greene and Pernell Roberts all wore toupees?...
this is whats happening. the scary black boo is a legacy amber. amos and his weels are there. eddie does not belong stop messing with him.liz. and now...this cult that got too big for their britches is being exiled from hollywood. they are lorne green woe wales. so the natural formation from hollywood is to kill them. and as don is king and carol is queen and amos is legacy way.the terms and conditions to communal culters like press and liz will be outlined. and they do not belong anywhere near actors. they do not respect their respect of the arts (they oppose expression of artistic endeavors or freedom to express), and so forth. they also oppose personal freedoms and freedom of speech and attack newspaper. its all about fascism. and now...the passage back begins with Charo and mike douglas tv show host. charo became the misspoken word woe.and thus all horror begins with what they created her into...Teemer. and now alec and salma will remove themselves as teemer two ma. and now...again alec ...

Canadia 1, USA 0. Oh, Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love in all thy sons command yaddayaddayadda. You owe us for Lorne Greene. You owe us for Terrance & Philip. You owe us for the Beebs. Now it's payback time. We're about to go Full South Park on you! Donyne Plankenhorn, Kim Deschamps, Elena Roebuck, and Lily Bean, prepare for the worst! And don't try that old "but we gave you Neil Young and Joni Mitchell" ploy.
Rats, lost at hockey and we have to keep Bieber. We did get Lorne Greene though so things almost even out.
Let's call this "Obscure Friday." It's 2:45 am, and I'm burning the midnight oil (that's an expression older than Ben Cartwright). But, hey, look what I found! Bonanza was one of the greatest TV shows ever, and a sturdy example of family values. Many of my family & friends grew up with Little Joe, as we all sat around the TV on Sunday nights. Well, the famous family's patriarch, Ben Cartwright, probably could have run for president, if actor Lorne Greene hadn't been Canadian. I never knew this song existed, but now we all do.
The original Battlestar Galactica was terrible. There I said it. All you Lorne Greene fans can go to hello if u don't like it.

(yes, that's right. Fifty THOUSAND!) 2- I am terrified of Elephants. I've been attacked twice! Once when I was little and my cousin took me to Catskill Game Farm and the baby elephant tried to eat me.and then again when I was about 12 and my Aunt took me to a county fair. They tried to get me to pet it so I's stop being afraid and it swung it's trunk and sent my flying! (It was trying to kill me I tell you!) 3- I wanted to grow up to be an airline stewardess. After HS I tried to join the Air Force. To sum it up, I had all the qualifications except being what they deemed aesthetically acceptable. :-( 4 - I've been to seven countries (so far) not nearly as much traveling as I would have liked to do in this life of mine but I'm not done yet! 5 - I'm a total Sci-Fi geek.

Me with Lorne Greene at Weir Cook Airport, Indianapolis, in 1960 or 61.
They said my speed was next to none But my lightning draw had just begun When I heard a blast that stung my wrist The gun went flying from my fist And I was looking down the bore Of the deadly .44 of Ringo They say that was the only time That anyone had seen him smile He slowly lowered his gun and then He said to me "We're even, friend" And so at last I understood That there was still a spark of good in Ringo From "RINGO" - LORNE GREENE

I'd never heard of him, but from the excitement in the editor's voice, I knew it must be someone famous. And rather than expose my ignorance, I said, "Great!" "He'll meet you on the Bonanza set." He gave me a TV studio address. We didn't yet own a TV, but I'd read about the new quiz shows offering big prizes. Bonanza, I decided, must be one of those. I'd interview Mr. Greene about competitiveness! I spent two hours writing out a long list of questions. The next day I stood in the wings of the sound stage, staring at a log cabin, a covered wagon, a backdrop of Ponderosa pines...I crumpled my sheet of questions.

Virginia City Jerky Company and Smoke House BBQ Had to add this place...Anyone remember the TV show Bonanza with Lorne Greene, Michael Landon, Dan Blocker and Parnell Roberts? The town they rode to most often was Virginia City and it is in fact a real place. The Comstock Lode made one man rich and Silver mine shafts are all over the town, some odd 70 miles of them to this day. I was up there today, the sidewalks are wooden, there are gun fights in the streets, you will even find this dude roaming about with his donkey...A common phrase as you pass him smiling is "I know the reason you're smiling is cause yer look'in at my *** Virginia City Jerky and Smoke house is the real deal, an old west smoke house where all is made fresh from scratch and any meal in there can be had for under $8.50. My sort of place! LOL When you visit Reno, plan a day to see Virginia City.
Lorne Greene - The saga of the ponderosa from 1964
When Stanwyck's film career declined in 1957, she moved to television. Her 1961–1962 series The Barbara Stanwyck Show was not a ratings success but earned her an Emmy Award.[17] The 1965–1969 Western series The Big Valley on ABC made her one of the most popular actresses on television, winning her another Emmy.[17] She was billed as "Miss Barbara Stanwyck," and her role as frontier family matron Victoria Barkley was likened to that of Ben Cartwright, played by Lorne Greene in the series Bonanza. Stanwyck's costars included Richard Long as Jarrod Thomas Barkley, (who had been in the film All I Desire (1953) with Stanwyck), Peter Breck as the hot-headed Nick Barkley, Linda Evans as Audra Barkley, and Lee Majors as Heath Barkley, the son fathered out of wedlock by the Stanwyck character's husband with another woman. As one of her many roles, she also appeared in the television series, the The Untouchables with Robert Stack. Years later, Stanwyck earned her third Emmy for The Thorn Birds.[17] In 1985, she ...
Kenny Pulley When I was living in Petoskey, Mich. , we came down one year for the Blossom Parade when Lorne Greene and Michael Landon were in the parade . how many of you remember that year ?
Would be perfect if it had Lorne Greene as Adama.
The Rifleman was so cool. Another tough talking New Yorker cleaning up the West. Why are there no single dad tv shows any more? Or are there? I really don't know what's on tv now. The 60's had a lot of single dad with kids, no mom, tv shows. Off the top of my head: The Andy Griffith Show, Bonanza, My Three Sons, The Rifleman, The Courtship of Eddie's Father, Family Affair, The Beverly Hillbillies. Maybe those of us growing up in the 60's and 70's had a warped perspective; I don't know about you, but I learned that women just ruin the family dynamic. I'm going to have my coffee now, so I can talk in my morning Lorne Greene voice. Best voice ever, sorry James Earl Jones, and Michael Butscher.
Just ♥'d this on Sixteen Tons by Lorne Greene.
January 16, 1973…After 14 seasons, NBC-TV aired the 440th and final episode of the western series "Bonanza," starring Lorne Greene, Michael Landon, Dan Blocker and (for its first six years) Pernell Roberts. It ranks as the second-longest-running western series in television history, behind only "Gunsmoke."

With the passing of The Professor and Reuben Kincaid today, you have to go back to 1987 when such a talented duo died on the same day. We lost Lorne Greene and Peter Tosh on the same day that year. Richard Dawson, Lee Majors, and Lyle Waggoner, please stay strong. We need you now, more than ever.
Nothing could be finer than eating at this diner in the morning. BTW Lorne Greene ate here.

I have been looking for Lorne Greene, Marty Robbins, Johnny Horton, that kind of stuff, ballads mostly.
There was a Chinese restaurant very close to El Camino Market. It was across the street, probably next to the Dairy Queen. Can't remember the name, but back in the '70's, my friend worked there. One night she was working the register and a man bearing a very strong resemblance to Jackie Gleason walked in and ordered takeout. As she wrote the order down, she asked for his last name and first initial. He looked at her with an odd expression and said, "Gleason, J." Anyone remember the name of the restaurant? Or run smack dab into celebrities? My husband met Lorne Greene at the Cow Palace and he ran into Dan Blocker quite by accident on Mackinac Island at the Grand Hotel. Obviously, a long time ago since both have been gone for a long time now. So. When YOU were young, lo these many decades ago, did you meet anyone? And no fair answering that you purposely set out to get an autograph. It has to be accidental.
Indulging my weakness for 70's disaster movies with Earthquake Blu Ray. It has not worn well. Ava Gardner as Lorne Greene's daughter? Naa.

Was in a western movie with Lorne Greene from Bonanza . did TV commercials and Magazine adds. I never put a lot of time on a career because I did not want to travel and be gone from my two small children at that time. I was raised in an orphanage so family is what is most important to me. AND I do love my face book friends. So Flo thank you for your interest my friend.

The upside of today's library visit: original recipe Battlestar Galactica on DVD!!! And I worked up the gall to watch it! I started watching as soon as I got home & immediately burst into tears at seeing Lorne Greene as Adama.

They were totally not sci-fi geeks at all & I'm really wondering if that was maybe their drinking night... Back to BG!
A sleep deprived state leads to serious illness and even death. There are many real life examples to back up this statement. One such example is that of Lorne Greene who played Ben Cartwright in the television series :Bonanza." He had been trying to fulfill a heavy schedule of commitments which gave him little opportunity for the rest his exhausted body needed. He caught a simple cold which quickly developed into pneumonia that required immediate hospitalization. His body's already weakened immune system, due to sleep deprivation, was not able to fight this disease - HE DIED UNEXPECTEDLY. Green, who was in the best of health before this, was in his late sixties. No matter how carefully people may eat or how many vitamin - mineral or herbal supplements they may take or how frequently they may exercise, the bottom line is that without sufficient sleep the body's front-line defenses are going to suffer terribly. Simply put: a consistent program of adequate rest - on a DAILY BASIS IS REQUIRED to keep the immu ...
First ever pop song I remember hearing on the radio was 'Ringo' by Lorne Greene, really miss Bonanza and the era of innocence it represented.
Canadian actor Lorne Greene was cast as Commander Adama in the 1978 "Battlestar Galactica". Green spent 14 years (1959–1973) on the western TV series "Bonanza". After "Bonanza", however, he found work hard to get. He was in a failed cop show, and was forced to narrate a syndicated wildlife show to get work. He made two notable appearances, though: One in the Irwin Allen film "Earthquake", and the other in the TV mini-series "Roots". Glen A. Larson, creator of "Battlestar Galactica", cast Greene as Adama solely on the basis of Greene's continuing popularity as Ben Cartwright in "Bonanza". Larson wanted a respected father-figure with gravitas to be the leader of the rag-tag fleet, and that was Greene. Greene allegedly thought the show was inane and the role beneath him, and was glad that his scenes were limited. But he did not voice his opinion until many years later.
Father and Daughter, Lorne Greene and Ava Gardner, Earthquake. Although it is a bit strange that dad was only a few years older.
The short-lived NBC musical variety series, "The Sammy Davis Jr. Show" began on this date in 1966. Among the guests that night were Richard Chamberlain, Lorne Greene and Don Adams. But the biggest draw of the premiere was special guests Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. The trio performed "What do the Simple Folk Do?" The series, which aired Fridays at 8:30 p.m., was history by April 22nd. L.A. Times photo of Davis, dated Dec. 14, 1979, was shot by Larry Armstrong.

My number is 8. 1. Aside from the first month after I was born (when we lived on Grantosa Avenue), I lived in the same house on Santa Rosa Boulevard for the first 19 years of my life. 2. I almost drown when I was about 5. We had an indoor pool, I was tip toeing around the perimeter singing a song when I slipped and fell in the deep end. I sunk like a stone. My brother, 6 years older than me and at the opposite end of the pool practicing with his pitchback, jumped in and saved me. 3. Probably as a result, I am afraid of drowning. I had a recurring nightmare when I was a teenager, of falling thru ice and being unable to find the hole I fell thru. 4. If I have a rough fingernail, I will obsess and rub it in anything and anything until I can smooth it. 5. I absolutely love old country music; Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, the Gatlin Brothers, the Statler Brothers, Roger Miller. 6. When I was a little girl I wanted to marry Lorne Greene. My mother told me he would be dead by the time I was old enough to ...

Fox (comedic actor), Margaret Atwood (novelist), Richard Dreyfus (no intro needed), Mordecai Richler (author of the novel on which Richard Dreyfus's first or second movie is based, THE APPRENTICESHIP OF DUDDY KRAVITZ) and -- That's the list for now.
Nostalgia for sale: Son of 'Bonanza' star Lorne Greene auctions off large collection in Reno ‘When Sky Richarde, personal assistant of Chuck Greene, son of the late television star Lorne Greene, called Anchor Auctions and Appraisal with a collection of Lorne’s memorabilia and personal items for sale, owner and auctioneer Jeff Pilliod said he had every reason to be excited. “When you have a name to match with (the auction), it adds a lot more entry to it,” Pilliod said. “And ‘Bonanza’ was very, very popular.” “Bonanza” was a hit western series that aired on television from 1959 to 1973 and starred Lorne Greene as Ben Cartwright, the patriarch figure of the fictional TV family. Lorne Greene died in September 1987. Greene’s son now lives part-time in Incline Village, close to the site of where the replica of Ponderosa Ranch operated from 1967 until its closure in 2004.

Used some Father's Day money to buy a DVD of the old old Battlestar Galactica TV show...the one with Lorne Greene. It's not as bad and campy as I thought. The dialog is a bit clunky, but it's not that badly written.
So, who was the best television father of all time? In my opinion it was Lorne Greene as Ben Cartwright, patriarch of the Ponderosa.
And ben played by lorne greene was the one of two people who stayed on the show throughout its entirety.
