Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 2 ratings.
Michael Landon is a name immortalised by cult tv westerns BONANZA and LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE. Perhaps not so well known is his creation of a quite brilliant but ultimately short-lived show FATHER MURPHY. Broadcast on American tv from 1981 to 1983 the story revolves around the lives of (a pretend) priest Father Murphy and others at Gold Hill orphanage during the 1870s. Storylines from Season 1 covered many challenging issues including adoption, bigotry, child labor, greed and kidnapping. The series was further enhanced by a quality of acting from both the adult and child stars. Sadly, FATHER MURPHY survived for just one more season which was a pity because had it enjoyed the same longevity as LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE it might have achieved similar international recognition.
