The slick Hailey novel about passion and intrigue at the corporate level of the automotive industry emerged an elegantly produced soap opera in this project, the biggest ever handled by a single director and highlighted by the Emmy-nominated performance of Lee Remick as the bored wife who finds that playing second fiddle to her executive husband's development of a new car leaves her plenty of time for some extramarital sex, alcohol and drugs. This ten-hour movie was filmed in an unprecedented sixty-one different locations around southern California with a star-laden cast heading a roster of over 150 speaking roles.
It subsequently gained the dubious distinction of being truncated in its repeat showing by four hours with absolutely no publicity -- and with no viewer complaints as Parts 3 and 4 were simply dropped without notice.
