Adapted from the best seller by John Jakes', NORTH AND SOUTH covers the two decades prior to the Civil War, beginning in 1842. Real-life historical events are filtered through the eyes of two rival clans: the Mains, a South Carolina plantation-owning family, and the Hazards, a family of Pennsylvania industrialists.
The starring role goes to Kirstie Alley as Virgilia Hazard; most of the footage is devoted to the fluctuating friendship between Orry Main (Patrick Swayze) and George Hazard (James Read).
The A-List guest features includes Gene Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Leslie-Anne Down, David Carradine, Robert Mitchum, Jean Simmons, Hal Holbrook (as Abe Lincoln) and Johnny Cash (as abolitionist John Brown). The recipient of seven Emmy nominations, this DVD contains the complete NORTH AND SOUTH collection.
