(PBS, 1976) miniseries
A large part of the complicated logistics involved in shooting this thirteen-part series included taping in various locations around Rhode Island. Newport's Marble House stood in for the court of Louis XVI at Versailles, for instance, and other Newport mansions were used for scenes that took place in England, France, Holland, and Saint Petersburg. Providence streets passed for Boston streets, and a farmhouse on Jencks Road in Foster represented one in Braintree, Massachusetts. Providence's John Brown House also got some screen time, and according to Kim Klyberg (whose father, Al, was director of the Rhode Island Historical Society at the time), "My Dad... was a nervous wreck that some hot light would come crashing down and torch the place!"
