Not listed in the credits, or anywhere else for that matter, is that this is one of Katie Sagal's first movies. She plays the unemployment manager.
I remember this movie when it first previewed. I saw it on TV when I was a kid and never forgot it. I thought James Franciscus was believable (back then), but I'm sure it appears like some pretty cheesy acting these days.
This movie is simply about a man's spiral down the ladder of corporate success. It's sad, and I wasn't expecting this kind of plot, that's why I never forgot it.
Like Easy Rider, I was shocked at the end. If you like this type of 70's made-for-TV movie, you won't forget it either.
