    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • This movie was set in 1905.

      • There is no mention of Adam, Candy, or Jamie, the boy that Ben adopted. Jamie would have had some claim on the ranch as Ben's son.

      • Bonanza History Rewrite: Annabelle tells Josh, Hoss' son, that his father was best man at her wedding to Joe. This isn't possible since Hoss was already dead when Joe married Alice Harper, in the episode Forever. This would make Annabelle his second wife, but no mention of this is made.
