Clarissa Harlowe is a young 18th-century Englishwoman. Her family have aspirations to move into the aristocracy and want her to marry the repellent Mr Soames as part of their plan.

With a budget of over £3 million, filming on Clarissa began 29 Apr 1991 and continued for 16 weeks until 19 July 1991. Locations included several large country houses (one in the north of England, another near Stratford, and a third in Hampstead). Some exteriors were shot outside The Inns of Court in London but much of the filming was done at London's Ealing Studios, where a three-storey Georgian house was specially constructed for the series.

i loved this movie from the first time i viewed it on masterpiece theater. i have watched it repeatedly from a friends old video taped copy of the film over and over w/comments from Mr.Cooke. it's now well over 10 years and the VCR copy just isn't doing so swell. it seems that there is nowhere in this country to obtain a copy of Clarissa on DVD-formatted for this region. i have seen several complaints about this very thing on the web. i think we should all ban together and make someone cough this DVD up! it's long overdue. the film is beautiful-rich in the costumed pageantry of the time. it's the same thing that made me love the film dangerous liaisons so well(the version with john malkovich and Glenn close of course)! the story line zips you through the movie captivated. letting you forget how long it really is. of course let us not forget that Sean bean plays the most scrumptious lover/villain-as only he can!! at any rate i would highly recommend this film for anyone who loves great film making, period pieces, and crafted storytelling because it's all here.
