What's great is to see those amazing mini-series at last on DVD. The transfers are ok, not amazing.
Packaging is really cheap and uninspired. People who are not familiar with the title will not buy it. In this case, you should have highlighted: "From the best-selling novel by Dominick Dunne" -- he sadly just passed away and his new and last book is on the best-seller list.

Boring

Really disappointed , so disappointed that i couldn't even bring myself to finish it.The acting was superb, except for Stephen Collins, so that wasn't an issue, it's just that it was so boring,...Read complete review

Really disappointed , so disappointed that i couldn't even bring myself to finish it.The acting was superb, except for Stephen Collins, so that wasn't an issue, it's just that it was so boring, no camp, none of the fun of what it promised, did NOT seem like an 80's mini series, seemed more like a bad BBC production from the 70's.

        dvd in perfect condition, attractive cover as well, content disappointing tho. characters, dialogue, music, all dated, even for something made in the 8Os, and in spite of the efforts of the talented and beauteous ann margret. claudette colbert was well ... claudette colbert,.
        i've read every dominick dunne novel ... hope he wasn't too embarrassed
        by this unfortunate interpretation of his fabulously entertaining 'dishing the dirt' story. i'm sorry he's gone .. hope it wasn't this dreadful 'movie'
        of his carefully written story that pushed him over the edge.

            I am so happy to see & now own this mini-series...I remember seeing this back in the 80's and read the book by Dominique Dunne. Loved seeing CC & AM in scenes together. Happy with purchase. Yes, no titles, extras, etc., which would have been nice.

                I could not wait for this come out on DVD, since no broadcast or cable stations run mini-series from the 80-90's! Miss Cobert & Ann-Margaret made the book come alive in this mini-series.

                  Comments about Two Mrs. Grenvilles, The (MOD):

                  This is a miniseries of rich people dealing with the problems of being rich and powerful form the Dallas/Dynasty era of 80's tv. It has high values so the sets, costumes etc are first class, the script is very good and the performances are excellent, especially from Ann-Margaret and Claudette Colbert in her final film appearance. I would recommend it on that alone for fans of either woman. Great print too!
