I first watched the mini-series back in 1977/1978 and bought the book to read straight after. Needless to say I couldn't put it down even though I should have been revising for my school exams! The T.V. adaptation was absolutely brilliant.The choice of the three major characters was outstanding.Lesley Ann Warren has a " je ne sais quoi" you don't find in many actresses today, t.v.or movie. David Dukes and Marc Singer were just superb. The translation of a story about vice and prostitution into a story of long lasting love and devotion was just breathtaking, for want of a better word. I would also be VERY interested in a DVD version, if there is one out there?
