Reviews

In this powerful, dramatic filming of the Henry James classic, superbly adapted for the screen by Jack Pulman (I, Claudius), Suzanne Neve stars as the young Isabel Archer. On the death of her father, Isabel refuses the hand of Mr. Goodwood and leaves her married sisters for Europe, stubborn, independent, and in the company of her rich eccentric Aunt Lydia (Beatrix Lehmann). Welcomed into the bosom of her aunt s family, she is soon befriended by her cousin Ralph (Richard Chamberlain) who respects and admires her spirit. Ralph persuades his father, on the aged man s deathbed, to divert half his fortune to Isabel, while he watches to see what she makes of her now fully-funded freedom. The choices she makes, both good and bad, will have a deep and long-lasting impact on those around her, arousing much passion and weighted with much grief. In his book The Realists , acclaimed author C.P. Snow described this production as a supreme television achievement, aesthetically and in all other ways. As gripping as it is compelling, it is not hard to see why.

It brought back to me the excellence I first felt watching it on TV, and taking me to reading the book,probably James's best.The secret lies in Neve's beautifully luminous performance,which radiates and uplifts the performances
of all around her.

Remembered the series the first time around some many years ago and found it equally enjoyable many years later as a present
