Synopsis

Vividly filmed kitsch from the pen of Judith Krantz -- in the tradition of "Scruples" and "Princess Daisy" -- as adapted by Rosemary Anne Sisson (one of the creator of "Upstairs, Downstairs") and Terence Feely, with directing chores split between Douglas Hickox and Kevin Connor. In the eight-hour miniseries (originally scheduled for only seven), beginning in the 1920s, Stacy Keach is the self-centered French painter to whom three generations of women give their love -- the naive American girl in Paris (Stefanie Powers) who becomes famous after he paints her and then dumps her for wealthy American patron, Lee Remick; the subsequently successful model agency head Powers' daughter, who becomes his mistress; and their illegitimate daughter, played by newcomer Philippine Leroy Beaulieu (in the title role). Hickox directed the first four hours, from the '20s to World War II; Connor took the story to the present.
