Historical Soap Opera of Hollywood's Early Daze
9 September 2001 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Cheese, cheese and more cheese. Mix Harold Robbins' pot-boiling plot (that unfolds in the early days of the Hollywood studio systems) with that "80s Dynasty-esque glamour" and you're left with some bad acting, bad dialogue, and some historical inaccuracies. However, you just gotta love hissing at the screen when bad girl Morgan Fairchild appears to chew up some scenery!

If you love bad miniseries from the 80s, here's one for you.
