When she's getting ready to leave the party at Larry's house, Maggie goes to their bedroom to pick up her coat (all of the partygoers' coats had been laid out there on the bed). There is at least another coat or jacket by the pillow area of the bed when she comes in, but a moment later after she has looked around the bedroom and peeked into their bathroom, when Maggie walks by the bed to leave, the other coat or jacket by the pillow is missing. It is "possible" another guest "could have" have reached in and grabbed it, but it is highly unlikely since Maggie was only in the bedroom for a moment and she was never surprised by anyone coming in and catching her kind of snooping around.

I echo the sentiment of the other reviewer. This is so much more than a soap opera...
I caught this movie on the late show about 20 years ago and if recall correctly, was going through the end of a relationship at the time. The movie struck a chord, though frankly I'm not sure why I received it's message so deeply. This is my favorite Kirk Douglas movie by far. Kirk is not known for subtlety but he's great here.
I typically judge movies by their ring of truth, and this one has it in spades.
A must see...
