Dallas (1978)

Barbara Bel Geddes as "Eleanor Southworth "Miss Ellie" Ewing"

"Dallas" is the saga of the Ewing family and its massive oil empire. Patriarch Jock has three sons. The eldest is J.R., the relentless CEO of Ewing Oil. Less obviously malicious are Bobby and Gary. Over a decade-plus of backstabbing, inbreeding, lust and greed, dozens of characters enter and exit the "Dallas" universe.
