Editorial Reviews

She was born Princess Marguerite Alexandrovna Valensky, but everyone called her Daisy. Daisy is the daughter of an American movie goddess, Francesca Vernon (Lindsay Wagner) and the playboy Russian Prince, Stash Valensky (Stacy Keach.)

Daisy was a blonde beauty living in a world of aristocrats and countless wealth. Men desired her. Women envied her. Daisy’s life was a fairytale filled with parties and balls, priceless jewels, money and love. Then suddenly the fairytale ended, and Princess Daisy had to start again, with nothing, except the secret she guarded from the day she was born.

Across an international landscape stretching from the horse-drawn carriages of pre-Revolutionary Russia to the magic whirl of New York’s Madison Avenue, Judith Krantz, who gave the world Scruples, has created a glittering dream of a story filled with secrets and discoveries, filled with glamour and pain, filled with sadness and joy. And the beating pulse of it all is Princess Daisy. The ultimate heroine.

I first saw Princess Daisy on WE. I didn't know what it was or what it was about, but i was immediately hooked on it. Merete van Kamp, who plays Daisy, is beautiful, graceful, and elegant, and Rupert everett, as Ram (Daisy's step brother who falls in love with her) is stunningly handsome. But not only are the actors beautiful, but the story is captivating. The acting isn't fabulous, the screenplay is at times cheesy, but all in all, it was very entertaining and i watched all three hours of this soap-opera-ish movie, and in the end decided that i thoroughly enjoyed it!

Princess Daisy is an enjoyable little mini series for a rainy afternoon. It's a movie good for using very little of your brain's resources but darn entertaining if your into lust, passion, betrayel, (and the occasional incestual rape sub-plot). All in all, a rather nicely done soap-drama. Not a bad way to spend a lazy afternoon at all.
And I'd just like to mention another mini series which was originally penned by Judith Krantz. "Mistral's Daughter" is an even better mini series than this! When will the DVD gods bestow that wonderful mini series on dvd????

Of all the miniseries made from the books of Judith Krantz this is my personal favorite. I first saw it years ago on VHS but I missed it when it came out on DVD. Now of course if you want a copy you can play on an American DVD player you have to be willing to pay a small fortune for what is basically a long, soapy TV movie. Till now I as much as I wanted to see it again I said "Nope" because the sums being asked for this trashy little gem are just too much for my wallet. A couple of days ago a pal of mine online told me something I didn't know, that VLC media player can play any DVD even those for other regions if you open said DVD from somewhere else via a computer that has this program installed on it. Given I already use it for playing video and given there are UK copies of this film from $4 in existence guess what I just ordered off Amazon? :P Yup, I can live with seeing it again on my computer.

I thought the casting on this miniseries was a bit better than on some of the others. Rupert Everett was just wonderful in this as the twisted Ram. Keach and Wagner work better here than in some other Krantz roles, and Merete van Kamp is actually quite good as the twins Daisy and Dani. The most fun performance in the film though by far is Ringo Starr and Barbara Bach who are perfect in their roles. It's totally high camp and wonderful. It made me laugh so hard watching them.

I just wish they'd release this one again in the USA format. It deserves it. The rest of her miniseries I can take or leave. I watched them once, enjoyed them mostly, but not this one. This one is a keeper! I'd watch this one at least once a year just for the sheer fun of it....

This 1983 mini series is typical of such series produced in the 1980s. It tells the enjoyable tale of Princess Daisy from birth to the moment she finds true love.
I was particularly interested in the fine performnaces of the majority of the cast in particular Rupert Everett and the late Robert Urich.
This is an ideal buy for anyone who loves a bit of a romantic fairy tale.
Enjoy.

I have not seen this movie since the early 80's and have loved it since. I just happen to come across it here on Amazon, and just had to have it. I could not wait to get it in the mail, It was like getting a present! It's a must see movie, very touching.

Life is very changeable. Sometimes good, sometimes bad but the story is really acceptable with the actors proper story-telling
and the good ending for everybody.
