Dan Curtis takes on monumental project in mini series
LOS ANGELES (AP) - “War and Remembrance,” with a budget of HOO million and set to run 30 hours on ABC, may well be the most monumental project ever undertaken by one man in the history of motion pictures or television.
The one man is director Dan Curtis.
In addition to directing, Curtis is the executive producer and co-wrote the 2,119-page
script with Earl Wallace and author Herman Wouk. “War and Remembrance” is the sequel to Wouk’s “The Winds of War,” which Curtis also directed.
Curtis has been filming “War and Remembrance” since January 1986 and will not complete principal photography until September. He spent most of last year in Europe. This year he will film in California, Hawaii,
Florida, Washington and Philadelphia. The sea battles will be filmed in miniature in the Bahamas in 1988. Then he faces a year of editing.
The miniseries continues the story of Pug Henry (Robert Mitchum), Rhoda (Polly Bergen) and their family. It tells the story of World War II on the battlefields, at home and in the Nazi death camps.
“This is my third year on ‘War and Remembrance,’ counting the pre-production work,” Curtis said in his motor home during a half-hour lunch break from shooting He spent four years on “The Winds of War” and expects this will take five years After the 18-hour “The Winds of War,” which ABC broadcast in February 1983, Curtis swore he would not do the sequel Why did
he change his mind?
“I guess it helped to have a year off,” he said “I couldn't find anything I wanted to do. Nothing seemed to be a challenge It was all pale by comparison to what I had done.”
In the meantime, ABC moved ahead with its plans for “War and Remembrance” and negotiated with Curtis.
