An enjoyable miniseries about old Hollywood. Someone release this on video!, 17 February 2006
7/10

I remember enjoying this on TV several times and look forward to having it on video. It's rarely even shown on TV anymore. Are you listening, Sony? If you don't want to release it, license it out to someone. it would make a nice DVD.

Lots of comfortably familiar faces like Kaye Ballard and Eve Arden (any Mothers-In-Law fans out there?) Morgan Fairchild and Morgan Brittany (who was in Gypsy as a kid on the same backlot) Vincent Gardenia, always likable Mark Harmon, and many more.

See the backlot and other parts of Warner Brothers (then "The Burbank Studios") which looks familiar from countless movies and TV shows... See the interior of the Hollywood Pantages as it looked in the 80s (the theatre Mel Ferrar is sitting in before his character bows out) See lots of familiar TV/movie/stage actors chewing up scenery. I don't know how faithful it is to the Harold Robbins novel, but it's good old fashioned Hollywood fun, and I recommend it as such.
