The Major Problems of “HEAVEN AND HELL: NORTH AND SOUTH BOOK III” (1994)

Any प्रशंसक of the John Jakes’ NORTH AND SOUTH trilogy would be और than happy to tell आप that the worst entry in the author’s saga about two American families in the mid 19th century was the last one, ”HEAVEN AND HELL: North and South Book III”. Those प्रशंसकों would be speaking of the 1994 टेलीविज़न adaptation, not the novel itself. Unlike many of these fans, I do not share their low opinion of the three-part miniseries. But I will not deny that ”HEAVEN AND HELL” had its share of problems. Below is a सूची of...

I wrote this लेख about one of the major characters in the "NORTH AND SOUTH" Trilogy, written द्वारा John Jakes and adapted for टेलीविज़न द्वारा David Wolper:


"REMEMBERING VIRGILIA HAZARD"

My हाल का viewing of my "NORTH AND SOUTH Trilogy" DVD set, led me to the "Special Feaures" section that featured a behind-the-scene look at the टेलीविज़न miniseries trilogy. In it, Patrick Swayze (Orry Main), James Read (George Hazard), Lesley Anne-Down (Madeline Fabray) producer David Wolper and the trilogy's author, John Jakes discussed both the literary and टेलीविज़न versions of the saga. I found their recollections...

THE MAJOR PROBLEMS OF "NORTH AND SOUTH: BOOK I" (1985)

If I must be honest, I share that opinion. However . . . "NORTH AND SOUTH: BOOK I" is not perfect. Below are some of the reasons why:

"NORTH AND SOUTH: BOOK II" (1986) - EPISODE FOUR "April-November 1864" Commentary

Episode Four of the 1986 miniseries, "NORTH AND SOUTH: BOOK 2" picked up at least seven to eight months after Episode Three left off. The miniseries arrived at a point in which the Civil War began to embark upon its last year. And yet, the miniseries itself had reached its mid point. I found it odd that producer David Wolper, director Kevin Reynolds and the production’s screenwriters would portray the war’s last साल (in reality, eleven months) within three episodes. Oh well.

The episode began with a strong...

The साल nineteen eighty-two saw the publication of "North and South", the first novel of John Jakes' trilogy about the United States before, during and after the U.S. Civil War. This first novel, set during the United States' Antebellum Era, was adapted into a six-part miniseries in 1985.
