Ben's brother, Aaron is now in charge of the Ponderosa, and Little Joe's wife Annie also lives there. His son, Benjamin has come back fom the East.

Missing An Actor - Why?
31 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was looking for the character who played Charlie in this movie - his credits named him as "Robert Fuller", but there is no listing of such a character on your sight. I wonder why? Plus...he was one of the main characters! I was searching for other things this "Robert Fuller" has been in on television (or in movies) and thus...could not find him. Has he another name? This 'remake' of the Bonanza television series is probably just as hokey, but if you liked the series, this was a fun and predictable sequel. Though Michael Landon Junior will never be his father (as far as acting goes), it was nice to see a 'tradition' reinvented for at least one attempt.
