BONANZA: The Adam Years: Season One.

Episode 1: A Rose For Lotta: (September 12, 1959)


As the pilot, this episode is very different in its feel from what became well known as the Cartwrights of Bonanza. So, if you are looking for the well rounded, ready to help whoever comes their way, Cartwrights this episode will be quite a shock.
The basic story line for this episode is that the Cartwrights have to defend their land, and themselves, from the local miners who want their timber.

The whole family are featured.


Local mine owners want timber from the Cartwrights, but Ben is not happy to provide them with this from the Ponderosa. The mine owners use an actress to try and lure a Cartwright into town, to be held hostage in return for the wanted lumber contract. Joe ends up in town with the actress, so drawing Ben, Hoss, and Adam in to search for him.

Notable Adam Moments:

The opening scene with Adam and Ben sitting looking at the lake - Adam has a leg draped over the front of his saddle. (see first picture)

Adam takes on his baby brother Joe, when finding him at home playing with an epee. A fight ensues, and Hoss steps in to break it up throwing Joe one way and knocking Adam onto the floor.

Adam sat on his horse, with rolled up shirt sleeves.

Adam wearing chaps. (He also isn't in his usual all black outfit)

Adam taking on a gunfight in a bar, so his father doesn't have to.(see above picture)
We also get an amazing close up of his eyes, during this scene.

Adam being very angry with the actress, Lotta Crabtree, who lured Joe into town, and later also getting to kiss the lady before mounting up and tipping his hat to her.

Enjoy the little things in life
