George Peppard plays a hard-driven industrialist more than a little reminiscent of Howard Hughes. While he builds airplanes, directs movies and breaks hearts, his friends and lovers try to reach his human side, and find that it's an uphill battle. The film's title is a metaphor for self-promoting tycoons who perform quick financial takeovers, impose dictatorial controls for short-term profits, then move on to greener pastures. Written by

At about the 2 hour point, Rena and studio stooge, David, are talking in her house. As the camera angles change, the background set switches between a bookcase and a railing behind them while the scene remains the same. See more »

"The Carpetbaggers" is a great campy movie. Everybody in the cast plays their parts to the hilt. Everything in the movie is over exaggerated: the storyline, the acting, the colorful costumes, and set. For my money, it is the sexiest movie ever made before censureship finally ended in the movies. Of course, this movie is based loosely on Howard Hughes' life. Howard Hughes' reaction to the movie was it didn't resemble much of his life.
Except for Alan Ladd, this is George Peppard, Carol Baker, and Elizabeth Ashley's best roles. This was Alan Ladd's last movie and it is a tribute to his talent and his quiet masculinity.
