Well, I thought I knew all there was to know about LHotP, only to learn something new...in fact, almost shocking to me.
I never knew that Michael Landon recycled a number of Bonanza sripts and used them for LH episodes!
Here's a few I just discovered........did anyone else know this??? Bonanza was before my time and I never watched it, so it's all news to me.Bonanza, Season 11:
Episode 347, "It's a Small World", became "Little Lou" about bias against Little People
Episode 361, "A Matter of Circumstance" became "A Matter of Faith" about Caroline almost cutting off her leg
