Jennie: Lady Randolph Churchill (mini-series) - U.K.'s 1974 Production Starring Lee Remick Comes to DVD

Acorn's 2-disc set brings all 7 episodes, seen on PBS, to home video this June

Posted by David Lambert
    A luminous Lee Remick stars as the mother of Sir Winston Churchill in this award-winning British miniseries seen on PBS. Written by playwright Julian Mitchell, who drew on private letters and papers from the Churchill family, it's a captivating portrait of a spirited American woman. Follow Jennie through her extraordinary life, from her first meeting with Lord Randolph Churchill (Ronald Pickup, Fortunes of War, Behaving Badly) at the young age of 19 through their whirlwind marriage, Winston's youth, a feud with the Prince of Wales, exile in Ireland, Randolph's death, and two more marriages: the first to a man the same age as her son, the second to one even younger!

    For her effervescent performance, Oscar and Tony Award nominee Lee Remick (Days of Wine and Roses, The Omen) won the best actress Golden Globe and BAFTA Award, as well as an Emmy nomination. Filmed on location in family homes including Blenheim Palace, the series also stars Warren Clarke (Dalziel and Pascoe) as Winston, Christopher Cazenove (The Duchess of Duke Street), Siân Phillips (I, Claudius), and Jeremy Brett (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes) as Count Kinsky, Lady Jennie's great love.
Acorn Media presents a 2-DVD release of Jennie: Lady Randolph Churchill, the 7-part U.K. 1974 mini-series starring Lee Remick. The cast includes Christopher Cazenove (Dynasty), who passed away earlier this week. The 361-minute production is presented in full screen video, English mono sound, and with English subtitles. Extras include a Lee Remick biography, a History of Blenheim Palace, and cast filmographies. Cost is $49.99 SRP in the USA, and CA$64.99 SRP in Canada.
