Capitol (1982)

Type :   Production countries :  


Capitol revolves around the Denning, Clegg, and McCandless families, who live in the fictional Washington, D.C. suburb of Jeffersonia. At the center of the drama are feuding matriarchs Clarissa Tyler McCandless and Myrna Clegg . Kindly and down-to-earth Clarissa and vituperative and vindictive Myrna are former best friends who in their youth had been rivals over the love of Baxter McCandless; in retaliation for Baxter falling for Clarissa and not her, scheming Myrna had spread lies about Clarissa's father, liberal Congressman Judson , linking him to communists during the McCarthy era.

Baxter has left Clarissa a widow, and Myrna is married to Sam Clegg . The longstanding feud between the women is enflamed when Clarissa's war-hero son Tyler McCandless falls in love with Myrna's daughter, Julie Clegg . Despite Myrna's best efforts to destroy this match, they eventually marry. Also featured are Myrna's other children: Trey , who is being groomed for the presidency, Brenda , and Jordy . Clarissa's family includes sons Wally , a young man with a gambling problem, Thomas , a doctor, and Matt , a handsome athlete. Meanwhile Clarissa is in love with Senator Mark Denning who is in an unhappy marriage with agoraphobic Paula and is the father of reporter Sloane Denning . Clarissa later falls for Jarrett Morgan , who turns out to be her presumed-dead husband Baxter.
