TOP TV DRAMA of the 80's
11 June 2007 | by alfo_2106See all my reviews

This is probably one of the best adaptation of a Sidney Sheldon's novel. Shown in 1983 as a two-part TV miniseries, Jaclyn Smith stars as Jennifer Parker, a novice New York lawyer who had to clawed her way to the top.

Book lovers of Sheldon's novels, will enjoy this adaptation. Sheldon serving as executive producer of this film, made this film like reading his book.

Smith's performance is an added plus.A capable performer, Smith is excellent as usual. Armand Assante and Ken Howard provides the love interests. Assante is excellent and Howard portrayed his role of a politician like a real one -- huge,and boring! Excellent music and Smith's never been so beautiful on the small screen. A must for fans...
