Trivia

Peter Boyle's character in T.R. Baskin works for a fictional company called Con-Amalgamate. Con-Amalgamate would re-appear in later films penned by Peter Hyams. In Capricorn One (1978), Con-Amalgamate is the company whose "made-in-America screw-up" is allegedly responsible for the astronauts being grounded under false pretenses. In Outland (1981), Con-Amalgamate is the corporation that is mining the Jupiter moon Io. Ironically, Peter Boyle also stars in Outland as the corporate head of Io's branch of the corrupt Con-Amalgamate company. See more »

Looking for T.R. Baskin
12 March 2006 | by (College Station, TX) – See all my reviews

I caught this movie one Sunday afternoon on TV at least 15 years ago and never forgot it (and have not been able to find it). I have searched for it on e-bay, amazon, here -- and can't find it.

Candace Bergen gives an amazing performance as a young woman starting her life alone. I would love to see it again ... as I recall, the scenes are very 70s and may look dated, but the story is timeless.

As I recall, it had shades of "Looking for Mr. Goodbar," but not as dark. I would say the movie has a sardonic feeling. Candace Bergen's character, T.R. Baskin, is smart, cynical and searching for her place in the world.
