Synopsis
The origins of the feuds and fortunes of the Ewings and Barnes clan are chronicled in this self-contained "prequel" to the popular "Dallas" series, spanning the years from the Depression through the early 1950s. Larry Hagman, as J.R. Ewing, spins the tale which unfolds entirely in flashback and has a cast of relatively unfamiliar faces as younger versions of the two long-warring families in their adventurous early years.<P>This concept of devoting an entire story to the backgrounds of a popular TV show's characters is relatively rare and usually done (as in the case of "St. Elsewhere") as an integral part of the series itself. Filmed entirely on location in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, this three-hour melodrama received Emmy Award nominations for costume design and sound editing.
