Are these the names of Bonanza episodes or 1980s action films?

Were "Desert Justice" and "Firewalker" on the big screen or the small?

The classic western Bonanza ran for 14 seasons from the late 1950s to the early 1970s. Over its 430 episodes, it told many action-packed stories of the Cartwright family.

The episode names almost sound like they could be movie titles. In fact, sometimes they were! Season 10, Episode 26 is called "The Running Man," sharing a name with the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger film.

With that in mind, here are 20 different titles. Can you tell which ones are Bonanza episodes and which are action flicks from the 1980s?

17 for 20. Best book on Bonanza is by David Greenland.
Did you know NBC gave producer David Dortort a choice between axing Bonanza or High Chaparral, because it was too much $$ to keep both on air? That Hoss appeared in a 3 Stooges movie when the boys visited Venus? And that Michael Landon and Lorne Greene are buried next to each other?

16/20. Not bad considering most were guesses. I'm not a fan of action movies, but that's how I figured them out.

18/20. I thought The Last Viking was a a Lee Majors movie (well, it would've been in the late '70s). The Last Dragon I thought was a Bruce Lee movie. Good score though. 😊
