Product Description

Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck considered East of Eden his quintessential novel. At more than six hours, this sumptuous 1981 production brings Steinbeck s bestseller to the screen more fully and faithfully than any other adaptation. Sweeping from Connecticut to California and from the Civil War to World War I, it follows three generations of the tumultuous Trask family: patriarch Cyrus (Warren Oates); his feuding sons, Adam and Charles (Timothy Bottoms, Bruce Boxleitner); and quarrelsome grandsons, Aron and Cal (Hart Bochner, Sam Bottoms). Through these men s lives slithers Cathy (Jane Seymour) a she-serpent who holds their love and enmity. With a cast that includes Lloyd Bridges, Howard Duff, Anne Baxter, and Karen Allen, this saga explores the nature of good and evil, the origin of sin, and the hope of reconciliation. In its ambitious themes, pervasive Biblical allusions, and abiding reverence for the land, East of Eden stands as a timeless American epic

Product Description

Bringing to life the bestselling novel by Nobel Prize winning author John Steinbeck, this TV adaptation faithfully follows the history of the Trask family from the Civil War to World War II. A recreation of the biblical story of Cain and Abel, East Of Eden follows estranged half-brothers Adam and Charles (Timothy Bottoms and Bruce Boxleitner) as they reunite after the death of their father, Cyrus (Warren Oates). They live together on their father's land, constantly quarreling, when they meet the manipulative and beautiful Cathy Ames (Jane Seymour), a prostitute with a dark past. The theme of good versus evil runs rampant throughout and entangles itself in the Trask family legacy through each generation. Jane Seymour's brilliant portrayal of Cathy through three decades, from young runaway to aging mother, earned her a Golden Globe. Fans of Steinbeck and Seymour alike will be pleased with this retelling which won an Emmy for best art direction and Golden Globe for best miniseries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not to miss! Jane Seymour in her greatest role 6 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
One of the best series done, Seymour is great playing a dark character, I think this series made her famous, Bruce Boxleitner also, you may remember Timothy Bottoms from Paper Chase "Mr. Hart"
Paperchase is an oldie but its a good one.
I'm surprised there are not many reviews here, check Amazon USA and read the reviews, maybe it was not advertised as much in the UK as in the USA. Anyway don't pass up missing this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Melodrama 1 July 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Good in parts, and Jane Seymour puts in an impressive performance. Sadly, the characters in the second half of the series just didn't ring true.

I am a Jane Seymour fan and was delighted with this series. Although Jane portrays an evil character her acting talents are not diminished. Quality of the DVD is very good. I like the story line too.
