The Manions of America
The Manions of America was a three-part miniseries originally telecast September 30, and October 1 and 2, 1981. Set in Ireland and Philadelphia in the late 1840's, Rory O'Manion (Pierce Brosnan in his American TV-movie debut) escapes from the Great Irish Potato Famine to head to America, where he goes into business, opens old wounds with old enemies, and is reunited with his lover from the old country, British blueblood Rachel Clements (Kate Mulgrew). This expensive project was scripted by onetime Upstairs Downstairs staff writer Rosemary Anne Sisson. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
