A Fight For The Family Ranch

Swedish Ann-Margret is bigger in the U.S. than most Swedish people would believe. She is first and foremost a showartist, with a worldclass reputation. In the TV-series 'Homestead', she is the widow Amanda who fights for her ranch.

Ann-Margret's family left Valsjobyn in Jamtland, Sweden, in the 1940s. Fifteen years later she moved to Hollywood, and it was as a showartist in Las Vegas she first found success. Her spectacular and expensive performances soon were recognized around the world.

About the same time Ann-Margret got a record contract and 'I Just Don't Understand' became a hit.

The creators of 'The Flintstones' were inspired both by the record and her shows, and came up with Ann-Margrock in her honor. She did the voice herself.

In the 1980s she performed twicew in Stockholm with her Las vegas show.

Apart from shows and lightweight entertainment films, a.o. 'Viva Las Vegas' with Elvis Presley, Ann-Margret has also made many convincing, serious parts, such as 'Carnal Knowledge' in 1971, where she plays a model who longs for love. Two years ago, she received critical acclaim for her part as the politician Pamela Harriman in a TV-film.

In 'Homestead', Ann-Margret plays the widow Amanda Wyatt. After her husband died in a planecrash, she now has to fight alone to keep their cattle ranch in New Mexico. Exploiters want her land to make it into a ski resort.
