Throughout the series, but more pervasive in the earlier episodes, the women hairstyles and the men haircuts are from the 1970's. Men did not wear bangs nor long hair as depicted. See more »
It takes a lot of pain and love to raise a boy, maybe I gave so much to Rudy, there wasn't enough left over for you.

I saw this series on TV in the 1970's and it was excellent. Great acting by Nick Nolte as the wild one and Peter Strauss as the good guy. It mystifies me that this series was never distributed on DVD or even VHS, when other not even a quarter as good series than this one, have come out on DVD or VHS. I'm positive Rich Man, Poor Man, would sell very well. Everybody would buy it.
