TV’s Bonanza: With Charles Dickens

Ron Hogan alerted me to Jonathan Harris portraying Charles Dickens in an episode of TV’s Bonanza. A quick search later and some info:

136.) A Passion For Justice
September 29, 1963
Written by: Peter Packer
Directed by: Murray Golden

Charles Dickens visits Virginia City and is appalled to discover his work being reprinted without his permission by the local paper.

And this wonderful clip:


“I’ve poured my life into my work. And I have to fight for it.”




“They fail to realize how much a writer gives of himself. How much of his soul is locked into every word.”

There are two other clips: One, Two.
