Charleston

1st richard soldier 2nd

(NBC, 1/15/1979, 120 mins). A tacky road-company version of “Gone With the Wind” involving a Southern belle (Delta Burke) who is determined to hang onto her aristocratic family’s mansion following the Civil War. Its dubious distinction comes from its feminist viewpoint and the fact that its producer, director and writer were women (the last died before completing it) and that its stars were virtual unknowns.
