New Release: Sins DVD

Sins movie scene

Joan Collins stars in the 1986 TV mini-series Sins.

Olive Films released the deliciously trashy 1986 television mini-series Sins, starring Dynasty queen Joan Collins, on DVD on June 21, 2011.

Sins tells the long-winded story of Helene Junot (Collins), a woman who survives the horrors of the Nazi occupation of France and suffers a succession of challenges as she rises in the world of fashion, ultimately building her own couture house. Of course, there’s lots of love, lust and betrayal along the way.

Based on the 1982 novel of the same name by Judith Gould, Sins was executive produced by Collins (then at the height of her TV popularity) and her then-husband Peter Holm.

The 6½ hour TV drama “event” was renowned for containing some 85 costume changes for Collins (reportedly a record for a single production). Many of her costumes were designed by Valentino.

Directed by Douglas Hickox, Sins also stars Timothy Dalton (The Tourist), Steven Berkoff (Beverly Hills Cop), Lauren Hutton (The Joneses) and Marisa Berenson (Barry Lyndon).

No special features are on the DVD, which carries the list price of $39.95.
