American Dream | 1980
Critically acclaimed drama about a family that moves from an affluent Chicago suburb to the mixed inner-city neighborhood where the father grew up. The idea is to give the children, who are becoming materialistic snobs, the feel of a big city environment. Veteran actor Hans Conried, as the neighborhood old-timer who helps these pioneers in reverse, had one of his last roles in this film and the six-episode series that followed in the spring of 1981. Both the director and the writers received Emmy Award nominations.
