I couldn't finish the first disc. Barbara Stanwyck played Mary Carson, and while she looked so very Big Valley that I kept expecting her to say, "Nick! Heath! Jared! There's a fire in the barn!" she was also very creepy in her lust for Father de Bricassart. She was beyond cougar; she wanted to devour him, ick. I gave it 30 minutes, and that's my standard for a movie. I'll give a book 100 pages and a movie 30 minutes and if I'm not entralled, I move on. Life is too short, and to quote The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society, "Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad books."
