When I saw this mini-series in 1984, I was a high school kid who was absolutely blown away by its sheer magnificence. The cast was phenomenal, and the storyline seemed to be somewhat of a romance story with a lot of history thrown in.
I hope this mini-series will one day be re-released onto video or DVD. "Ellis Island" taught me a lot about what my ancestors probably went through when they came to this country to start a new life, as just about ALL of our ancestors did.
If given the opportunity, watch this one. It's worth your time.
