Although he had been a working actor for years prior to this production, Nick Nolte became a star after appearing in this very popular mini-series. In fact, the network wanted his character to appear in the sequel they were planning and Nolte refused to alter the story to make that possible. Peter Strauss also became an in-demand actor after this project. See more »

I can still remember a very young Nick Nolte and Peter Strauss in this series - who would have thought at the time this series would have catapulted them both onto Hollywood careers . Definitely the the first and the best TV mini series -
it had me glued to the TV set each week - so as not to miss an episode . I think Falconetti with that eye patch , he must have been one of the best bad guys to hit the small screen in a long time - i wonder where he is now. Great to see it is AVAILABLE to BUY in the UK on DVD .
I have ordered my copy from Amazon UK as soon as i saw it was available
