Plot & Details

The classy made-for-TV Harem managed to get away with plot devices that dated back to the days of Rudolph Valentino. Nancy Travis heads the cast as Jessica Gray, a turn-of-the-century American woman who is kidnapped and ensconced in the harem of Turkish sultan Hasan (Omar Sharif). Jessica immediately runs afoul of Kadin (Ava Gardner, in her TV-movie debut), Hasan's jealous head wife. All petty squabbles are forgotten as the plot picks up momentum, incorporating murder, political revolutions, and near-escapes. Sumptuously photographed in such locations as London, Tunis and Spain, Harem originally aired in two parts on February 9 and 10, 1986.
