Greene, Lorne

Greene left the CBC in the late 1950s to become an American father figure on Bonanza, the last television program to argue that women are irrelevant and don’t need to come on the cattle drive. Later on Greene worked as the only TV host ever to simulcast voice and his own unique interpretation of international sign language. While only 13 percent of Americans believe Elvis is still alive, 70 percent of Canadians believe that Greene is still alive and guiding U.S. network television from his isolated Arizona ranch.
