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 »

Monologue.... Very moving, unforgettable performance!
31 March 2008 | by (Landrum, SC) – See all my reviews

I saw this on a television set at home, so many years ago I forget WHY it made me cry. Have not been able to contact Miss Bergen to ask her about it. Of course, Murphy Brown was "required" watching. and I followed as long as I was in the Country. Without answers to my questions, I can hardly pad this into 15 lines. Autobiographically, I can tell stories similar to T.R.'s but I don't think they would draw a tear from anyone but me. As a matter of fact, more likely to make one die laughing. Career attempts in Europe and New York. Mother footing all the bills and never giving up on me, bless her. So after all this time, and deaths of both my long-suffering parents, I am becoming a writer, not capitalized yet. So after I am reminded of that superb performance by the Bergen, and after I have heard from herself, perhaps I can hold the proverbial candle to her sensitive portrayal of a girl seeking a career. Buona Fortuna a tutti !, Elettra
