James A. Michener's “Dynasty”

blackwood william sarah mccullum

(NBC, 3/13/1976, 120 mins). The saga of a pioneer family husband, wife and brother in law torn by jealousy, deception and rivalry in love and business as they seek their fortune on the Ohio frontier. The story, originally entitled “The Americans” and covering a 35-year period starting in the 1820s, looks to be a trial run for Michener’s subsequent American epic, “Centennial.”
