"RACE TO FREEDOM: THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD" (1994) Review

Many televisie viewers and moviegoers might be surprised to learn that Hollywood had aired a good number of televisie films that featured the topic of U.S. slavery. One of those films proved to be an offshoot of the 1977 miniseries, "ROOTS". However, another was the 1994 televisie movie called "RACE TO FREEDOM: THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD".

The 1994 televisie movie is a story about the Underground Railroad, a loose network of secret routes and veilig houses occasionally used door willing 19th-century slaves in the United States to escape...

"THE BLUE AND THE GRAY" (1982) Review

In 1982, CBS televisie aired a three-part miniseries about the experiences of two families during the Civil War. Sounds familiar? It should, for John Jakes had wrote something similar in three novels between 1982 and 1987 – namely the "NORTH AND SOUTH" Trilogy. Jakes’ novels were adapted for televisie in 1985, 1986 and 1994. However this miniseries was produced door Larry White and Lou Reda. And despite the mildly similar theme to the "NORTH AND SOUTH" saga, there are some vast differences.

I was surprised to discover that many of his works had been adapted. And one of them turned out to be the 1982 televisie movie, "THE SHADOW RIDERS".

I have only seen two L'Amour adaptations in my life - "THE SHADOW RIDERS" and the 1979 two-part miniseries, "THE SACKETTS". Both productions seemed to have a great deal in common. The two productions are adaptations of L'Amour (which...

”THE WINDS OF WAR” (1983) Review

Some forty-five years ago, auteur Herman Wouk wrote ”The Winds of War”, a bestselling novel about the experiences of a middle-aged U.S. Navy officer and his family during the early years of World War II. A decade later, ABC televisie and producer David Wolper brought his story to the televisie screen with a seven-part, fourteen-and-a-half uur miniseries that became a ratings hit and a major Emmy and Golden Globe nominee.

Produced door Dan Curtis and Barbara Steele, and directed door Curtis; ”THE WINDS OF WAR” was a sprawling saga that told the story...
