New Kid on the Hitching Post

Post by Janet the Wicked » Thu Jun 13, 2019 6:07 pm

Hi, Ya'll!
My name is Janet. I have rediscovered Bonanza and especially Pernell Roberts, who I adore. How can anybody be that good-looking???
Growing up, we were a Gunsmoke family, so I didn't get a chance to see Bonanza until it went into syndication sometime in the 70's, if I remember correctly. At that time I was nuts about Lorne Greene. Anyway, I'm happy to have found a working Bonanza website; so many have simply died out, I guess. I came across Bonanza: Scenery of the Ponderosa site and am enjoying the background info about the actors and the show.
I searched Amazon to see if anybody had written a biography on Pernell, but I didn't have any luck. Is there someplace out there in cyber-land where I can find out background info on Monsieur Roberts? I'm an old movie buff and have many books and bios. I think Pernell's life may make for an interesting read.
I understand he left the show because he wasn't happy with the story lines and went on to pursue theater work. I don't get it because he looks like he was having a hellova time making that show, as do the other actors.
