Lorne Greene

Written by: Robert Pettit

He was very popular on television in America. For years, he played Ben Cartwright on “Bonanza”. Being patriarch of a piece of land in Nevada, he and his three sons lived on the “Ponderosa”. Did you know he originally hailed from Canada? One day, he stepped into a recording studio. The product of this endeavor was a song called “Ringo” High on Billboard’s charts this record would go. Mr. Greene was a very popular actor in his day. Sadly, in 1987, he passed away. Thanks to the Internet Movie Database for information I obtained.
