Fascinating and beguiling.
25 March 2004 | by babbhSee all my reviews

Even though it has been 34 years since I saw this made for tv film, I still think about it. The scenery at Carmel and Big Sur fit the story perfectly with the brooding sounds of surf, wind and storm. Both Hackett and Thinnes were perfect in their roles. I would love to see it again and see if what I remember is the real film and not just selective memory. After reading the cast list, I began remembering more of the film and it's characters. I loved Tammy Grimes in her role--and Arthur Hill was well cast as the career preoccupied husband. The music also sets both the mood and tempo of this wonderful film.Perhaps someone reading this might know how to contact ABC tv and see if a video is a possibility.
