Trivia

From the late 1960s until the mid-1990s, James Karen (who played evil tycoon Nathan Lassiter) was the TV spokesman for the New York/New Jersey-based Pathmark supermarket chain. After his appearance here, Karen reported being accosted by people on the street, in addition to hundreds of people writing directly to Pathmark, asking how they could employ the heartless man who destroyed Walnut Grove. Concerned about possibly losing his lucrative Pathmark gig, as well as the negative attention it might bring the company, Karen made a point of personally responding to many of those who complained, and the controversy quickly died down, with Karen continuing to serve as "Mr. Pathmark" in their commercials for another 10 years.

"Little House On The Prairie" Goes Out With A Bang!
14 November 2006 | by Paris4242See all my reviews

"Little House On The Prairie" was one of those rare shows that actually had a final episode for it's original run. Perhaps Michael Landon's long relationship with NBC had something to do with that. The plot is simple. A evil miner takes advantage of the law and buys Walnut Grove forcing the people of the town to take action. James Karen plays the bad guy "Nathan Lassiter" to perfection. At the time Karen did a lot of commercials on television, and after playing "Lassiter" sponsors were afraid to use him as their spokesman. Luckily for us he would go on to find more work in film and television. Michael Landon's writing and direction on this final show was wonderful. He was always able to get a lot out of his actors. Dabbs Greer, who plays "Rev. Alden" should of won the Emmy. His performance is both moving and touching. No doubt Michael Landon had something to do with that. How sad shows like this aren't made anymore.
