I am amazed there is no post about it, since it is as soapy as they come. Elliott Baker wrote the teleplay for this adaptation of the Shirley Conran novel, and none other than David Jacobs produced it. Its famous line.. was declared the best line in television history by TV Guide in its 1993 issue where it celebrated 40 years of TV. The line would not have been possible to appear on TV had Dynasty not broken the taboo about the word "bitch" by having Krystle utter it to Alexis right before the lily pond catfight: "you miserable bitch!" The mini-series was quite the rave back in the mid-80s. There was a sequel, Lace II, which was not as good, but for Dynasty fans it has Christopher Cazenove before he entered the Carrington world. The original's music was written by Nick Bicât, whose music is top notch and who also did the music for one of my all-time favorite mini-series, "If Tomorrow Comes."
