Special Features


  • Dallas Reunion: Return to Southfork - 13 Years After the Series Concluded Its Original Run, Larry Hagman Hosts a Behind-the-Scenes Cast Look at the Most Exciting Moments in Dallas History

Synopsis


Dallas Reunion: Return to Southfork
Larry Hagman, Linda Gray,Victoria Principal, and other cast members from the nighttime soap (1978-91) recall their days serving up Texas-sized drama and all those classic cliffhangers. Also appearing are Charlene Tilton, Patrick Duffy, and Mary Crosby, who dishes the dirt on shooting J.R.. ~ TV Guide, Rovi

Dallas: War of the Ewings
In this sudsy made-for-TV installment of the Ewing saga, wily J.R. (Larry Hagman) finds himself discontent merely managing an oil conglomerate and decides to try to regain control of his father's company from Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and Sue Ellen (Linda Gray). But first he needs money. Opportunity knocks when he discovers that Ray Krebbs (Steve Kanaly) has a large untapped supply of oil upon his land. Best of all, Krebbs is ignorant of this fact. Unfortunately, J.R.'s long-time rival Carter McKay (George Kennedy) also knows about the oil and is not about to let J.R. get it. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Dallas: J.R. Returns
Dallas: The Early Years
Inspired by guess what television series, this made-for-TV movie traces the follies and fortunes of the Ewings and the Barneses all the way back to the 1930s. The familiar Dallas characters are played by unfamiliar (albeit very able) younger players: Miss Ellie, for example, isn't Barbara Bel Geddes (nor even Donna Reed) but the unknown Molly Hagan, while Jock Ewing is the slightly more recognizable Dale Midkiff. Larry Hagman, aka J.R. Ewing, appears long enough to introduce the film. As for J.R. himself, he shows up as an ominously nasty teenager, played by Kevin Wixted. Playing to fabulous ratings, Dallas: The Early Years debuted March 23, 1986. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    "THE BEST DALLAS SERIES FOR THE TV MOVIE VERSIONS"

    I watched the Episodes in this Particular DVD from the original Film Stock at the LA Studio where I met with larry Hagman and his entire Family. We talked and I told him I didn't watch the show until one time I saw an Episode and from that point J.R. got me hooked like a Drug Addict on Cigs! Anyway I went on a Tour of the Dallas Lot and then the entire Family flew me with their Private jet to Dallas and Southfork Ranch to check out the place for myself. I too have written a TV Screenplay except that is not for TV more like Adult Cinema of 21 Years old. In Closing, I loved it when Victoria Principal was kiled off because Frankly she stunk through the entire series and I loved it when they replaced her with that Blonde then she was shockingly killed off the lover to Bobby Ewing. The Early Years was fine and so were the two Mini Series two years apart I do believe. I like Dallas and in fact watched every single Newwer Version 2012 Dallas Series this year without missing a scene and they showed it twice so if I missed a scene then I would watch it again and it was on TNT! So in January of 2013, I will be eagerly waiting for more of the backstabbing of the cast. I am waiting for the Series to be on DVD and soon will buy them as well as this Video on DVD. Dallas is now one of my favorite shows next to Falcon Crest, Dynasty and Knots Landing. Flaming Road got taken off the Air and so did Dynasty II: The Colbys after two seasons. So for now, Dallas is my Favorite and in jan 2013 I will watch it on the road online on a Private Jet whjen I fly to China. Don't ask me how my arms will feel after the flight either.

    THE BEST OF THE BEST FROM THE DALLAS SERIES!

    I watched the Ealry Years with my now Dearly Departed Mother in Tampa, FL I do believe? The other two Movies i am not sure who I was living with or was alone in my own Condo in South Beach Ca. My thought on all three films was the Early Years was a bit Boring for me but had a funny side to it. The other two were Action and Drama Packed with the Fingernail Biting and the Edge of your Seat scenes. It had the Ads but with these three Fi,ms no Adverts? Well I am game as long as it is there Next Week? I plan to Buy the 14th Season which marked the finale to it all. So Yes I would say do not buy this let me buy it instead.

    Though the story lines lacked real depth amd closure it is ALWAYS fun to see Hagman and the rest of the cast up to their old deeds! The origin story movie is well cast and sets up the original series nicely!

    I was glad to see the (retro) "Dallas" tv show movie collection. I loved watching JR Ewing & company on Friday nights for years. Watching this good, old show brings me fond memories.

    These made for tv movies filled in the gaps between new Dallas and old Dallas. Also gave you a look at the Main original charactors Jock & Digger before the JR and Cliff fued.
