Storyline

The soap-operatic story follows the fortunes of three ambitious youngish people: Billy, secretary and then wife to an older zillionaire, whose death frees Billy to start up a Beverly Hills boutique ("Scruples") and to pursue the pretentious and manly but commercially woebegone film director Vito Orsini. Meanwhile, Valentine, a French would-be fashion designer, and Spider, a parking lot attendant/photographer/stud, struggle up the ladder, become buddies and put off a romance that seems inevitable despite their difference in height. After Valentine and Spider become Billy's employees, they team up to navigate a number of speed bumps on the road to happiness. Written by Andrei Blok

DVD collection
1 April 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

with this movie, a truly wonderful mini-series why is this not yet on DVD, Lindsay Wagner is the queen of the mini-series of that era. I would really like to be able to find this particular mini-series for my own personal collection of this fabulous actress. Lindsay Wagner is the most versatile actress of her time, she can play any role that she needs to, she has you believing in her role, and she can bring any story to the screen. I would like to see more of her films and mini-series brought to DVD. There is not a lot of people who wouldn't love to see this and other movies of Lindsay Wagners brought to the DVD collection. I do have some but would really like to own this one,
