Product Description

The Sun Also RIses (1984)


Hart Bochner, Jane Seymour, Robert Carradine

This television miniseries derives its plot from The Sun Also Rises, the 1926 novel by Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961). Set in France and Spain, the miniseries follows the lives of several expatriate Americans and their acquaintances in the decade after World War I. These expatriates -- part of the so-called lost generation of Americans bitter about the war and disillusioned by prevailing U.S. values -- drink, roam, ruminate, and chase women. The central character, journalist Jake Barnes (Hart Bochner), pals up with fellow countrymen Bill Gorton (Zeljko Ivanek), an amiable war veteran, and Robert Cohn (Robert Carradine), a novelist and college-trained boxer, to enjoy Paris night life. Barnes runs into beautiful and sophisticated Lady Brett Ashley (Jane Seymour), whom he romanced in England while she was a volunteer nurse and he was recuperating from a war wound that left him impotent. She is soon to divorce her husband to marry Mike Campbell (Ian Charleson), a hard-drinking Scot. Still smitten by her, Barnes follows her everywhere. So do Gorton and Cohn. Cohn falls hard for her. But Lady Brett says she wants to live happily ever after with many men, not just one, in spite of her betrothal to Campbell, a liaison with Cohn, and her affection for Barnes. Such is the scope of her appetite for men. For a new diversion, bullfighting, all of the principals -- including Campbell -- go to Pamplona, Spain. There, matador Pedro Romero (Andrea Occhipinti) whets Lady Brett's appetite all over again with his derring-do in the bullring. After Cohn discovers her in bed with Romero, he beats the bullfighter livid. It is all for naught. To Lady Brett, Cohn is an interesting toy, nothing more. The story reaches its conclusion when Romero -- purple with Cohn's bruises -- enters the arena to challenge a bull. Will Romero survive? Will Lady Brett choose him over Barnes? Will she marry Campbell?

    Great movie. Glad to have in my collection.

  3. "impossible to find" DVD, quality sound & image, well wrapped 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 29th 2019

    Much appreciation to Zeus for sourcing this extremely rare product. Image and sound quality are fine, especially considering that this was a 1984 made-for-TV movie. This adaptation is a 4-hour production and comes on 2 discs. There is a persistent small "bug" (visual brand icon) in the lower left-hand corner of the screen, and yes, it took considerable time for the product to be shipped. But it arrived in excellent shape and the recipient could not be more delighted.

  4. The Sun Also Rises 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 19th 2017

    I was glad to get this version. I remember watching in the 1980's and did not see again. Looked on Amazon and on streaming channels but could not find. Zeus was,the only one who had it. All in all it was a great purchase. Delivery went smoothly. I was sent a receipt and notice of shipping. A good option for the obscure or hard to get videos.
