Below is my review of the 1979 televisie miniseries called ”THE SACKETTS”:


”THE SACKETTS” (1979) Review

Thirty years ago, CBS aired a two-part miniseries (or televisie movie) based upon two novels written door the late Louis L’Amour. Directed door Robert Totten, ”THE SACKETTS” starred Sam Elliot, Tom Selleck and Jeff Osterhage as the three Sackett brothers.

”THE SACKETTS” told the story of Tell (Elliot), Orrin (Selleck) and Tyrel (Osterhage) Sackett and their efforts to make new lives for themselves in the post-Civil War West. Screenwriter Jim Byrnes took two novels about the...

"SENSE AND SENSIBILITY" (1971) Review

For some reason, I still find it hard to believe that until recently, very few people were aware that the first adaptation of Jane Austen's 1811 novel, "Sense and Sensibility", dated as far back as 1971. After all, people have been aware of other Austen adaptations during this same period of earlier. Even the Wikipedia site fails to mention it, except in connection with one of the cast members. What was about this four-part miniseries that eluded so many Austen fans?

In "SENSE AND SENSIBILITY", a wealthy landowner named Mr. Dashwood dies, leaving his two...

"MIDDLEMARCH" (1994) Review

Many years have passed since I first saw "MIDDLEMARCH", the 1994 BBC adaptation of George Eliot's 1871 novel. Many years. I recalled enjoying it . . . somewhat. But it had failed to leave any kind of impression upon me. Let me revise that. At least two performances left an impression upon me. But after watching the miniseries for the seconde time, after so many years, I now realize I should have paid closer attention to the production.

Directed door Anthony Page and adapted for televisie door Andrew Davies, "MIDDLEMARCH" told the story about a fictitious Midlands town...

"THE WAY WE LIVE NOW" (2001) Review

Some thirteen years ago, the BBC aired "THE WAY WE LIVE NOW", a four-part televisie adaptation of Anthony Trollope's 1875 novel. Adapted door Andrew Davies and directed door David Yates, the miniseries starred David Suchet, Shirley Henderson and Matthew Macfadyen.

"THE WAY WE LIVE NOW" told the story of a Central European financier's impact upon upper-crust British society during the Victorian era. Augustus Melmotte arrives in London with his seconde wife and his daughter, Marie in the 1870s. Not long after his arrival, Melmotte announces a new scheme to finance...
