  1. I missed this film when it came out and have since seen it on HBO from time to time, minus the widescreen which they show only at the very beginning and end. Would love to see it on TCM sometime in letterbox format. The performances are quite good as well as the technical aspects. The contrast between this version and the two-part TV version is interesting in that the TV version makes the father a much more sympathetic and long-suffering character, almost a tragic figure. not sure which interpretation is closer to the novel; but the film is a laudable effort…is the YouTube version widescreen?
