Episode Detail: The American - Masterpiece Theatre's American Collection

The series' "American Collection" continues with "The American," Henry James' 1877 novel about an American in Paris. Matthew Modine stars as a brash parvenu who made his money in the American West. He's in Paris to soak up the culture and find a wife, and he soon finds the icy Claire de Cintre (Aisling O'Sullivan), who's descended from Bourbon kings. He melts her heart, but to say that her family disapproves would be a decided understatement. Madame de Bellegarde: Diana Rigg. Mrs. Bread: Brenda Fricker.
