john virdon edward paul

(NBC, 9/24/1979 to 9/26/1979, 3 Parts, 120 mins each, 6 hours). A star-laden adaptation by three writers and three directors of Anton Myrer’s sprawling 1978 novel tracing the lives of five Harvard roommates of the class of ’44 and follows them through the next 30 years. Perry King, Bruce Boxleitner, Edward Albert, John Shea and Michael Nouri are the five in this three-part six-hour miniseries, with Deborah Raffin the romantic focus for each at one time or another. Several stars, like John Houseman and his 30 seconds of screen time, provide the now-traditional TV cameos. An Emmy Award nomination went to Pete Rugolo for his music score.
