    Yes.

    Of course sometimes I can't help but think this is just a clever parody, even though its obviously not.

    Did you by any chance click on the link to his sermon when he was 17? Now that is a hoot!

Very nice guy, kinda loud when he's had a few too many. Life of the party. Not sure I have seen him sober.

    He offered to take us all out, the four of us, (his treat) a few times to go drinking at area bars in Sac. Since i was married and a non-drinker, I always declined.

    He would pop into our work late at night, right after we closed when only a few of us were still there. He was looking for his two drinking buds. He was alone, often wore glasses (and a hat if i remember correctly, but that may not be corret) so people wouldn't recognize him. Just remember it was hard to identify h

    He loves women, that's what I hear. Definately not gay. Also, he wears his hair that way due to some bible character, I can't remember now. Goliath? or david?
    He is a very spiritual man who grew up as an abused child. So he wanted to potrey the father on tv the never had. Be a role model for children.
    Thank you. Mike.

    The last movie he did before his death was touching. I believe he wrote, produced, directed and starred in it. It was about a man falsely convicted of murder and found innocent many years later.

    He leaves prison, his wife remarried and children thinking he was dead(he and his wife planned this when he was convicted). He finds a prostitute and buys her dinner and was just nice to her. She becomes embarrased about her life and seeks to leave her "profession" and I believe is murdered by her pimp who wont let her.

    Simply, in the movie he was a man wronged by life who sought to right other people's lives. It was touching. It took a man of character and heart to write it. I'd love to see it again.

    Movie was called "Us" It's been since right after his death(1991) since I've seen it so I missed much of the plot in my description:

    I didn't listen to it, because in the comment section of the video, Sanderson, himself, apologized for getting his facts wrong.

    Hmmm....an obscure apology that will no doubt be scrolled to the next page of the comment section quickly.

    Your welcome Sounds like a great movie, I would like to see it also. If you know the name, I'll check it on netflix.

    I just called my wife. She remembers alot of what I said especially since she had a MAJOR crush on Michael Landon. I once called her late at night to ask if she wanted to go out drinking with him since she admired him so much but she didn't want to see him bad enough to hang out in a bar. And I think seeing him not in his best mind would have been disappointing.

    She tells me I told her the biblical character was Sampson. It had something to do with Sampson and galilah. Or Delilah. and hair, like someone cutting off Sampsons hair.

    My wife has a better memory of what I said back then. She also says he died of pancreatic cancer. He was an alcoholic also.

    About an hour or so away from our home was Ponderosa Ranch which is the stage of Bonanza. He played Little Joe. But it went belly up a few years ago.

    isn't that kinda like when the newspaper retracts something a week later and puts it on page D17? If he was worth a plug nickel, he'd take the video down but we know that's not going to happen.

    It's quite possible he could've gotten a warning from the executor of Landon's estate. If someone made false accusations about one of my deceased family members I would be on them like white on rice!

    Michael Landon died of pancreatic cancer 17 years ago today.

    Regarding his illness, he said, "Well the news shocked the @*%$ out of me. Nothing was further from my mind, since I'm only 54 and, with rare exceptions, I'd been healthy my whole life. Not that I don't deserve to have a cancer. I'm a good athlete and I work out hard - before this happened I could bench press 300, 350 pounds, no sweat - but I've abused my body over the years. I don't want people to think that everybody is a likely candidate for cancer of this type. I think I have it because for most of my life, though I was never a drunk, I drank too much. I also smoked too many cigarettes and ate a lot of wrong things. And if you do that, even if you think you're too strong to get anything, somehow you're going to pay."
