TBT: Jennie: Lady Randolph Churchill (1974)


We know how y’all love 1970s British miniseries around here, so sometimes we’ll oblige with a deep-dive! I was in the mood, so I gave Jennie: Lady Randolph Churchill (1974) a watch in the last week it was available on AcornTV. I didn’t realize when I started watching the first of seven episodes that it was soon to leave the streaming service, but soon enough, there was a warning that the series would be leaving in a few days, so I had to binge the whole thing (not my preferred method of viewing) and scramble for screencaps. So don’t say I never did anything for ya!

    Winston got his resilience from his irrepressible mother. Jennie, like her father Leonard Jerome, refused to be crushed by any reverses of fate. Fortunately for the world her son inherited that trait.

    My 70s viewing was so hit or miss. I never watched Upstairs, Downstairs, but I devoured this.

    Lee Remick really did not physically resemble the real Jennie; but she was such a good actress that she captured the role quite well. I’ll have to try seeing this on Acorn if it’s available; I rewatched it awhile ago on YouTube I think and it was rather blurry.
