A Bonanza/Godfather 2 connection

Post by debpet2 » Sun Feb 10, 2019 5:58 pm

I was catching part of Godfather 2 on TV today, and decided to look up some info about the character of Fredo, the middle Corleone brother. One thing I discovered was that the character of Deanna, Fredo's wife, was played by Marianna Hill...known to Bonanza fans as Dolores Tenino in Ponderosa Matador. I had not known of that connection before, and am curious as to how many Boomers were aware of it. In addition, Marianna is one of the many Bonanza guest stars who also made an appearance on Star Trek, playing Dr. Helen Noel in the episode Dagger Of The Mind. I suspect that is probably more widely known.
