Rich Man, Poor Man Fan Tributes
2 Christine Forage from Australia: I saw the mini-series which was the first mini-series that I saw in London. I had read the book and thought the translation to the t.v medium was very well done (particularly the casting of the characters who were not very well known then).
1 M Duncan from Scotland: One of Nick Nolte's earlier roles as the son of a thuggish baker. The young Nolte was good as the rebellious teenager who had to flee his hometown.
I went out and bought the book after watching the series.
