Did You Know?


This film was broadcast by ABC and televised on Election Night 1973. In NYC the film was broadcast on ABC affiliate channel 7. When Miriam was planning to "do away" with one of her rivals the film was temporarily interrupted for election results. Those NY viewers who could also pick up ABC affiliate channel 8 from New Haven Connecticut, where there was no interruption, could "fast Forward " and see Miriam pushing that rival out of an airplane. As the movie resumed in its entirety on ch7, viewers could relive the entire "airplane" scene, if they chose to. See more »

Tilson: Miss Knight, perhaps you can help Mr. Meyers with the theme of the Oedipus legend?
Miriam Knight: Easy. A guy can't kiss his mother on the mouth and get away with it.

One of the best made-for-TV films
20 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

As others have remarked, I find it disappointing that this film has not been released on video. I recall seeing it in 1973, as a senior in college, on my portable black-and-white TV set in my dorm room. I was studying and sort of halfway missed the first half-hour, but eventually I was so intrigued that I set aside the books and watched the rest.

The transformation of the Stockard Channing character in the course of her accident and plastic surgery is so striking that I truly did not know that she played both the "before" and "after" versions until reading the IMDB credits and user comments today.

I can only echo the requests of others to please re-issue this film on DVD.
