Astounding!
28 April 2001 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

If you have never seen this mini-series, you have never watched "Studs Lonigan". The 1960 film was a hack job. If you've read the book, you'll find the story is still altered. But Harry Hamlin does well as Studs. It's engrossing to watch his life unfold and the end is classic. This mini-series caused me to pick up and read the trilogy. I only wish this were available on VHS. If you know how to find a copy, let me know. thanks.
