Before “Roots,” “Lonsesome Dove,” and “Centennial,” there was RICH MAN, POOR MAN, the multiple-award winning television miniseries starting Peter Strauss (The Jericho Mile) that spanned decades and generations tracing the epic story of the Jordache family from 1945 to the late 1960s.  Finally available for the first time ever on DVD, RICH MAN, POOR MAN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION brings together all 34 episodes from Books I and II of this classic 1970s series based on Irvin Shaw’s best-selling novel in a 9-disc collector set ($79.95srp), plus an all-new candid interview with Strauss … only from A&E Home Entertainment.

One of the most honored productions in television history, including four Emmy® Awards, this “holy grail” of classic TV features an all-star cast including Nick Nolte (The Prince of Tides), Ed Asner (Up), Bill Bixby (The Incredible Hulk), Susan Blakely (“Nip/Tuck”), and Robert Reed (“The Brady Bunch”), to explore the timeless themes of the disillusionment of the American dream and the difficulties of human relationships.

Encompassing a period of tremendous social and political upheaval, the series focuses in particular on Rudy Jordache (Strauss) and his troubled brother Tom (Nolte) as they navigate divergent paths away from their impoverished immigrant upbringing. While ambitious Rudy seems destined for success, Tom suffers from an endless string of bad luck—but in the end, finds love. An absorbing and masterful portrait of a fascinating and ill-fated family, RICH MAN, POOR MAN recaptures a landmark moment in American broadcasting history.
