Jennie: Lady Randolph Churchill

1974 NR

Lee Remick won a Golden Globe for her engaging portrayal of Jennie Jerome, mother of Winston Churchill (Warren Clarke), in this PBS miniseries about the American-born beauty who commanded a top spot in British political society. Drawing on Churchill family papers, the biopic recounts Jerome's betrothal at 19 to Lord Randolph Churchill (Ronald Pickup), later marriages to much younger men and her strong bond with her son and future prime minister.
