Dan Blocker is one of the true television immortals, having played Hoss Cartwright -- the heart and soul of _"Bonzanza" (1959) -- for 13 seasons before his untimely death in 1972 at the age of 43. "Bonanza" was the most popular TV series of the 1960s, ranked #1 for three straight seasons (1964-65 through 1966-67) and spending a then-unprecedented nine seasons in the Top 5.
