Manions of American.....a Classic!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Manions of America [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Came upon this series on the Romance Channel quite by accident. Missed about 1 hour of the first part of the series. I was completely caught up in it within minutes. I've always admired the work of Kate Mulgrew. In spite of most of the scenes being very dark....could have been the quality of the cable transmission...the production was absolutely spell-binding.
By in large, it was a marvelous treatment of a part of history not often covered....the reason the Irish left Ireland and their struggles in America.
The cast was stupendous. Lina Purl is a delight.
I would recommend this video to any American History buffs.
