Contest - "Rich Man, Poor Man" Series DVD

This is to announce the beginning of a contest for a DVD of the landmark television miniseries “Rich Man, Poor Man.”

A&E Home Entertainment is releasing this long-awaited TV classic on DVD September 28th. “Rich Man, Poor Man” was the first miniseries produced on American television, and ran for 12 weeks beginning in February 1976. The excitement generated by that program led to later experiments in the miniseries format, including “Roots”. Its cast was a who’s who of Hollywood and 1970s television.

Including Dorothy McGuire, who was one of many in that production nominated for an Emmy.

You know how important Dorothy McGuire is around here.

I hope to post review of the DVD on Monday, though circumstances might delay that. For now, have a look at this link on Amazon for a detailed descripton of the item.

To Enter the Contest:

Just leave a comment saying you want the DVD. I’ll pick the winner at random next Thursday, September 30th at noon Eastern Time.

Good luck!

I remember watching it during my freshman year of college. I want the DVD. And you'll be picking the winner on the 55th anniversary of the death of James Dean.
