Storyline

This is the story of the happenings at a major bank. The first of which is that the bank's president announces that he is dying and that with no heir to take his place, he informs the bank's officers that he is letting them choose a successor. The two vice presidents who are the front runners for the job are Alex Vandervoort and Roscoe Heyward. Now Alex is not exactly running around looking for support, Roscoe can only see the benefits the presidency can give him. So he goes around looking for people who would like to do business with the bank. He goes to George Quartermain, who wants the bank to give him more than they are allowed to. While most of the board are excited of the possibility of going into business with Quartermain, Alex is the only one who is weary of it, as it's a big risk. Alex is not popular also because, while his wife is mentally ill and confined to an insane asylum, he is having an affair with a lawyer, who specializes in helping the disadvantaged, the bank was ...

Huge cast, lots of action and great acting
28 April 2000 | by (miami) – See all my reviews

I give it three and a half stars. The Moneychangers is a great adaptation of the Hailey novel, but the greatest claim to fame in this action packed story, is its cast, the fact that Christopher Plummer won an Emmy Award as best actor for it, and the return of actrress Jean Peters to the screen. You'll see pros Like Kirk Douglas and Christopher Plummer in a quite credible battle over the presidency of a bank. The rest of the cast is incredibly good, with a lot of big names in supporting roles. Joan Collins plays the vamp who steals Plummer from Jean Peters (looking radiant in her comeback after years of absence from the screen). Marisa Pavan is Douglas's wife. She plays a mental case and her psychiatrist is none other than Helen Hayes. Anne Baxter is head of personnel at the bank and becomes concerned when one of her tellers (Timothy Bottoms) is suspected of credit card fraud. Others in the cast include James Shighetta, Mikko Takka, Percy Rodriguez, Susan Flannery, Hayden Rourque, Virginia Field, Lorne Greene, Patrick O'Neal, and another dozen very recognizable faces. All these fine actors deal with a number of serious topics - infidelity, ambition, battle for success, madness, police investigations, jail, homosexuality, riches and poverty. Good show!
