It Was Anastasia You Know
10 June 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Film fans will no doubt recognize the plot of the classic Anastasia in this episode of Bonanza. Playing the heiress is the beautiful Patricia Medina who is of unknown origins and who adventurer Sebastian Cabot is trying to pass off as the heir to an old Spanish land grant. If successful they're going to rip off a whole big hunk of the territory of Nevada. The land grant that Cabot is claiming would also include most of the Ponderosa, something that Lorne Greene and his sons aren't about to tolerate.

As in the movie Anastasia the climax comes with the meeting of the grande dame of the DeLa Cuesta family played by Celia Lovsky with her alleged great niece Medina. Abbreviated though it is for television the scene is still well played.

A classic film adapted to the small screen setting of Bonanza, nicely done.
