Mr. Dortort and Some Familiar Names

Post by barb » Wed Apr 02, 2008 6:49 pm

I watched Hanging Posse again on Bonanza the other day, and noticed the names of two of the posse members were Buck and Blue. Has anyone else noticed that? I wonder if those names were favorites of Mr. Dortort since they were later used for two of the main characters on High Chaparral. I'm going to go back and check it again, just to make sure I didn't misunderstand, but I'm sure the two young guys said Buck and Blue when they introduced themselves. Thought that was interesting.

You are right about the names, Barb, but I had forgotten about it! Thanks for the reminder!! :cool1

It's very interesting that they were used on BZ in the very first season, and then so many years later on HC. It must have been names Mr. Dortort liked!!
