Richard Jordan takes the lead as Jean Valjean in this lavish 1978 TV adaptation of Victor Hugo’s classic tale of pursuit and revenge, brought to the screen with a fine cast and location photography from across France and Europe.
Jean Valjean, a handsome young woodcutter, is cruelly sent to prison for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his starving family. Released from prison many years later, he faces freedom with an urge for revenge until the benevolent Bishop Myriel takes him in and gives him shelter. When Valjean is caught stealing the Bishop's silverware the kindly Bishop tells the authorities that the silver was a gift, in return insisting that Valjean must change his ways, become an honest man and perform good deeds for others. However, Javert (Anthony Perkins), the ice-cold Inspector of Prisoners, relentlessly pursues Valjean and is determined to put him back in prison...
