The series became a huge success in the countries that aired it. Although there are boring moments, they do not last for long and very soon comes something that makes the blood run faster. His son Wesley is now in the care of Tom's brother Rudy , who was seeking a seat in the. Peter Strauss and his portrayal of Rudi is unforgettable. Later, another important character appears, the dangerous and eccentric Falconetti, lifelong nemesis of the Jordache Brothers, who is intent on killing them.

This company think that after 2 times to get my copy of Rich Man, Poor Man they can give me a refund and let Amazon sweep this whole matter under a carpet I surely hope that it will not happen, I would like to see Amazon step up to make this right with me I think and hope that they will. Meanwhile, Ramona Penny Peyser finds out that she is pregnant by Billy James Carroll Jordan. Meanwhile, Wes stalks Falconetti in Las Vegas. Sorry,but the disk would not read or play on my Blu-ray machine. These projects proved to be a critical and ratings success and were the forerunner for similar projects based on literary works, such as and. Overall, I thought the quality was better than what we had seen back in it's day and I'm thankful it finally came out. The last chapter for Book One was short about fifteen minutes.
For the price, it's very reasonable to be able to see this again. I just found out that it does'nt look like i'm going to get my copy of this dvd because Zoverstock once again mess up my order!!!!!!! I have a region 2 player, but I keep holding out for a Region 1 release. All of them were ambiguous. Even a villain Falconetti is like that due to something that happened to him earlier in his life. Rudy was the titular rich man, a well-educated and very ambitious who triumphed over his background and constructed a corporate and political empire. Season 1, Episode 1 September 21, 1976 Season 1, Episode 1 September 21, 1976 In Part 1 of this continuation of the Jordache family saga, Rudy Peter Strauss takes an active part in the lives of his wife's son Billy James Carroll Jordan and his dead brother's son Wesley Gregg Henry.
There is something extraordinary about it, something magic. Insert it again ,which I have done several times. Back in the 70's and read the book both were excellent. Despite there will be or already were other people who will be cast to this role, a certain portrayal will always be seen as the best. Overall, I would rate this a very good mini-series and feel it could be done roll forward today, because issues and struggles are same as what was portrayed in the book. The evolution of his character, especially trying to get back his first love and make his first million was brilliant scripted.
It was produced by and was the second time programming of this nature had been attempted. If you can get this title in a usable format for a reasonable price, it's still an award winner. There are a lot of moments that show life as it is: strange, unexpected, paradoxical, ambiguous. The 2nd book switch gear, so the second part of the series focused more on the offsprings Wesley and Billy Abbott and the key adversary Falconetti. I am in deeply in hopes that they do not mess up my order again or I will again be disappointed and will never trust or buy from them again.
Running times are not even close on some episodes. Susan Blakely's portrayal of Julie also, without doubt, deserves appreciation. Ed Asner won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of their angry German father. Nowadays, it may seem strange that people were so much influenced by a mini series, especially when there are so many of them. It was talked about over coffee breaks and at lunch. The network repeated the original series Tuesday nights at 9:00pm from May to June 1977.
I can not rate this set of dvd's because I never received it from Zoverstock!!! Nobody is, in fact, absolutely good or absolutely evil. Maybe if they hadn't waited so long to release this they could have gotten interviews or commentaries from some of the stars before they passed away. Many cameos and many fine performances. It's still worth getting because this mini-series hasn't been on the air in over twenty years. I've been waiting for this to be released since the early 1980's. Ed Asner who played Axel Jordache, Dorothy McGuire who played Mary Jordache and it also stars Robert Reed,Dennis Dugan, Dick Butkus, Mike Evans, William Smith who played the bad guy Falcon Eddy.
Season 1, Episode 20 March 1, 1977 Season 1, Episode 20 March 1, 1977 Billy James Carroll Jordan tries to make up for his betrayal of Rudy Peter Strauss by rifling Estep's private files. An absolute must-have for classic lovers, don't miss it! Probably bad timing though as I think it's now officially released a lot cheaper. Seated: Wesley Jordache and Billy Abbott. You will be captivated every single minute. The mini-series is divided up into Book 1 and Book 2 and track the lives of two brother as they go down different paths in life. Don't forget to get Book 2, as it completes this one.
I believe the falconeti character added value to the series, especially his determination to get back at the Jordaches. These 45 minutes of one part every Sunday was a time of a breath-stop in most families. What do all of you Amazon customers think about that situation with Zoverstock, would you be disapointed with them too? Nick Nolte as Tom could not have been better cast. This movie, although perhaps not well known or reminded in America these days, is one of the best. I couldn't figure out if I missed something or if there was a serious cut. I am sure it would sell well.
