Love's Savage Fury

producer taggart john robert

(ABC, 5/20/1979, 120 mins). This unabashed carbon copy of “Gone With the Wind” had a petulant, self-centered Southern belle fighting not only to keep herself the center of attraction among her countless beaux but also to hold on to the family homestead when the Union Army comes marching through, and then it veers off into a search for a cache of gold and a look at prison camp life under the bluecoats. “Not since ‘Gone With the Wind’ has there been a romantic drama with the epic sweep of ‘Love’s Savage Fury’” a voice intoned solemnly before the letters of the title, ripping a page from the classic to which its producers dared compare it, swept majestically across the TV screen.
