Television: The American

Paris in the 1860s. Christopher Newman is a wealthy self-made American who comes to Paris and meets and falls in love with a beautiful but troubled young widow: Claire de Cintre. Christopher is intrigued to by her but is thwarted at every attempt to meet her by her protective and stifling family. Through a friendship with Claire's brother, Valentin, and the help of the family servant, Mrs. Bread, Christopher is eventually granted a few visits to the ancient and claustrophobic Bellegarde home. The Bellegardes, however, disapprove of this brash parvenu and he stands no chance whatsoever of any union with Claire. Claire's mother, Madame de Bellegarde, has a dark secret which Christopher discovers and he uses it as a tool to pry Claire out of her mother's clutches.
