  • First published in 1969, Irwin Shaw's novel RICH MAN, POOR MAN wove the tale of the tumultuous Jordache family, from 1945 through the late 1960s -focusing most immediately on the experiences and divergent fortunes of titular brothers Rudy and Tom. Long, detailed, and melodramatic, with a fine eye for characterization and narrative development, the book sold millions of copies and inevitably led to a televised version. This particular 1976 production, however, bore none of the weaknesses that one commonly associates with material adapted for the small screen: working within the miniseries format, the program's creators enlisted an all-star cast including Nick Nolte (as Tom), Peter Strauss (as Rudy), Susan Blakely), and Ed Asner); emerged with 12 hours of drama; and netted scores of Emmy nominations. They also achieved such high Nielsen ratings that the miniseries spawned a one-season follow-up series, RICH MAN, POOR MAN - BOOK II. This set contains all of RICH MAN, POOR MAN and RICH MAN, POOR MAN - BOOK II as originally broadcast on American television.
