    Jane Seymour plays a fabulous bitch in CROSSINGS (1986) but that's a mini-series, not a movie.
    [​IMG]

    My top 3:

    1. Secrets (1992) starring Stephanie Beacham as a bitchy soap opera actress.
    2. Remembrance (1996) starring Angie Dickinson as the bitchy mother-in-law.
    3. Vanished (1995) but I don't remember much of it.

    I have read The Ring but haven't seen the movie.

    Here is a list of Ms. Steel´s books which have been adapted for TV (no signs of movie adaptations...):
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danielle_Steel#Filmography

    I thought I hadn´t seen anyone but I do! Maybe because it was sort of a private sequel to "Charlie´s Angels"...

    1- Family Album (1994) - Jaclyn fest, playing a female movie director in the golden days. Great supporting cast.
    2- Kaleidoscope (1990) - Another Jaclyn TVM, now surrounded by Perry King and other talented stars. It was more an ensemble piece, filled with glamour.
    3- Daddy (1991) - This time it´s Patrick Duffy the one suffering here, as a husband who divorces Garnet McGee and then marries Wonder Woman. His son is Ben Affleck, go figure!!
    4- Crossings (1986) - Agree with the post above, it´s soapy glory. Seymour bitchy, Ladd pretty, and the rest of the cast is good too.

    I have to watch "The Ring" one of these days, but I haven´t yet. That´s all. Anyway, I think that Steel and Sydney Sheldon are the only "trashy writers" that seem appealing to me (not mention the ones that don´t). The movies I have seen are quite worth watching and the production values are good, aside from the great casting.

    This pic of Pat with the baby is pure tenderness.

    You know for all of you who has never read any Danielle Steel book I can recommend you to read one named "His bright light". It is the story about her son Nick who was exceptionally gifted but also mentally ill. He commited suicide around the age of 19. :( That book is not her typical romance novel but an autobiographic book that is really well written and had me in tears when I read it many years ago.

    I read my first Danielle Steel book when I was 14. Then for about 10 years she was my favorite author. So I must have read about 30 of her books.

    I also watched several of her made for TV movies in the 1990s. So this is how I would rank them:

    1. Message from Nam (1993)
    About the Vietnam War.

    2. No Greater Love (1995)
    About Titanic disaster.

    3. Daddy (1991)
    With Patrick Duffy.

    4. Zoya (1995)
    With Melissa Gilbert.

    5. Star (1993)
    With Jennie Garth.

    6. Family Album (1994)
    A mini-TV series. But I will count those too!

    7. Secrets (1992)
    I can't even remember if I have seen this one or not.
    But Stephannie Beacham is in it so it will get a vote because of her!

    I might have watched some more but since I have no memory of ever having watched them I can't vote for them! :byebye:

    A bit late but oh well it's almost Christmas and so much to do. So your favorite movie adaption from a Danielle Steel book is:

    1111.jpg
    Daddy (1991)
    In this made for TV movie Patrick Duffy plays the lead and Ben Affleck plays his son. The movie is directed by Michael Miller.
    The movie is about a man who is struggling being a single father to his three kids after his wife abandons the family.

    You gave it a total of 26 points.

    I didn't find a trailer but this is the closest I could get:



    Then here's the rest of the list:

    Family Album (1994) 15 p.
    Secrets (1992) 14 p.

    Message from Nam (1993) 10 p.
    Kaleidoscope (1990) 9 p.
    No Greater Love (1995) 9 p.
    Remembrance (1996) 9 p.
    Vanished (1995) 8 p.
    Crossings (1986) 7 p.
    Zoya (1995) 7 p.
    Star (1993) 6 p.

    Then up next is: The 2010's

    As another decade is coming to a close, I thought it would be appropriate to look back at the movies that we’ve seen in the 2010’s. So which movie from this decade is your favorite?
