Dynasty, 1981-89
Another sweeping night time soap opera. Women had big shoulder pads, and big hair (or at least, big hats). The Carringtons lived in Denver, owning Denver-Carrington Oil. Blake Carrington (John Forsythe), his (2d) wife Krystle (Linda Evens), a lost child, a gay son, a spoiled daughter, a bitter first wife, Alexis Colby (Joan Collins), and a hidden daughter of Alexis & Blake. And a large supporting cast, and guest stars including President Gerald Ford! as himself! Alexis also lived in Denver, running the oil company ColbyCo.
Dallas had “Who Shot J.R.?”, but Dynasty had the Moldavian Massacre" the 1985 fifth season finale. Terrorists with automatic weapons left all of the major (& most of the minor) characters apparently lifeless. When the sixth season began, all of the major characters were alive, only 2 minor characters died.

Rainbow Tour, Evita (musical & movie), Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice

There again I've more to do
Than simply get the message through
I haven't started
Let's get this show on the road
Let's make it obvious
Peron is off and rolling

([Chorus:- Eva's dressers:)
Eyes, hair, mouth, make-up
Dress, voice, style, movement
Hands, magic, rings, glamour
Face, diamonds, excitement, image

I came from the people, they need to adore me
So Christian Dior me from my head to my toes
I need to be dazzling, I want to be Rainbow High
They must have excitement, and so must I

(Eva's dressers)
Eyes, hair, mouth, figure
Dress, voice, style, image

I'm their product, it's vital you sell me
So Machiavell me, make an Argentine Rose
I need to be thrilling, I want to be Rainbow High
They need their escape, and so do I

(Eva's dressers)
Eyes, hair, mouth, figure
Dress, voice, style, image

All my descamisados expect me to outshine the enemy
I won't disappoint them
I'm their savior, that's what they call me
So Lauren Bacall me, anything goes
To make me fantastic, I have to be Rainbow High
In magical colors

You're not decorating a girl for a night on the town
And I'm not a second-rate queen getting kicks with a crown

Next stop will be Europe
The Rainbow's gonna tour, dressed up, somewhere to go
We'll put on a show

Look out, mighty Europe
Because you oughta know whatcha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of
Just a little touch of
Argentina's brand of star quality

This is the 1996 movie staring Madonna & Antonio Banderas

The theme from Dynasty
