    To Be the Worst!

    Don't bother buying the DVD "To Be the Best." If you saw "Woman of Substance" and "Hold the Dream" this one doesn't come close. Lindsey Wagner makes an awful Paula, and she would never have had an affair with Jack Figg. Jack Figg figures prominently in the movie although in the book he was a passing figure. Sandy was head of Hart Enterprises and wouldn't have been gambling in Hong Kong. Philip ran the sheep station and had nothing whatever to do with the stores. They show Shane as being antagonistic toward Paula's working and that didn't happen. Also, what happened to Paula's older twins. They are not mentioned and Emily has no part in this story either although she was a large part of the book.<BR/><BR/>The only good part of this DVD is that Barbara Taylor Bradford introduces it.<BR/><BR/>Dont' waste your money on this one.
