Trivia

At the beginning of the ninth season of this show, despite health problems, Jane Wyman was allegedly so displeased with the direction the writers and new producers were taking the show, in that she refused to play the scenes. She asked that they release her from her contract, but the producers refused. A compromise was reached in which they wrote her character out as being in a coma. At the end of the series, when it was determined that CBS was cancelling it, Wyman returned for the final three episodes. See more »

Solid,classic soap opera from the 80's
9 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

Who could have thought that Earl Hamner,the creator of The Waltons would follow in the footsteps of series creators Lee Rich and Aaron Spelling? Well,Lee Rich was the brains behind "Dallas" and "Knots Landing",while Aaron Spelling was at the helm behind "Dynasty","Hotel",and "The Colbys", Hamner was the creator behind "Falcon Crest" one of the solid classic soap operas that ever came to prime-time. While it rivoted viewers from 9 seasons on CBS-TV,it was one of the top ten shows of the 80's and early 90's. This show was totally different and it didn't take it stories too seriously since it was set in the Tuscany Valley of California which consisted of wealthly vinyardists who would bickered at each other,and plot and scheme their way to the top of the empire. Leading by some heavy hitters including legendary actress Jane Wyman,Susan Sullivan,Robert Foxworth and Lorenzo Lamas and not to mention special appearances by Ursula Andress and actor Eddie Albert,this show was to make the expected the unexpected and so forth. Great series! Catch it on SoapNet!
