James Carroll Jordan
Based on an Irwin Shaw novel, this 1976 miniseries follows the Jordache brothers from the post-World War II period through the late 1960s. While Rudy (Peter Strauss) gains wealth and power, his brother Tom's (Nick Nolte) life spirals downward. Tom's son, Wesley (Gregg Henry), and Rudy's stepson, Billy (James Carroll Jordan), also develop a tension-filled rivalry. Edward Asner, Dorothy McGuire, William Smith and Susan Blakely co-star.
