In A Woman of Substance, Jenny Seagrove was magnificent as a tough woman who fought poverty and bad guys to become a department-store queen. Now, in this four-hour follow-up, Seagrove plays her own granddaughter. She's born rich, so there's none of the spunk and spark—or plot—of the original. I couldn't figure out who all the characters were (even though they were played by such notables as Deborah Kerr, Claire Bloom and John Mills). Nor did I care. Old money is duller than new.
