Lee Remick stars as Jennie Jerome, better known as Lady Randolph Churchill through her marriage to the son of the 7th Duke of Marlborough, and mother of the most celebrated British politician of all time, Winston Churchill. Famed for her beauty and intelligence, the vivacious, American-born Jennie was a driving force in the lives of both of these great men; it was at her dining table and in her salon that the young Winston met and conversed with the most brilliant political figures of the age. Jennie recognised her son’s genius for politics and was able to nurture and foster it, and Sir Winston would repeatedly pay homage to her energy, courage and dedication.

In portraying Jennie, acclaimed American actress Lee Remick fulfilled an enduring and dearly held wish. Her performance won her several accolades and awards, including a BAFTA and a Golden Globe for Best Actress; for Variety magazine, Jennie was the character Remick ‘was born to portray’. First screened in 1974 as part of ITV’s commemoration of Churchill’s centenary year, this stunning biographical drama charts all the major events in Jennie’s life. Award-winning costumes and location scenes that include family homes - with several filmed amid the splendour of Blenheim Palace - lend a striking authenticity, and a star-studded cast also includes Ronald Pickup as Lord Randolph and Warren Clarke as Winston Churchill. Among other awards, James Cellan Jones won a Directors’ Guild of America award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement, and in 1991, in one of Lee Remick’s last public appearances, her achievement was honoured by the presentation of the International Churchill Societies’ twelfth Blenheim Award.
