A set of note constructed for this film was a whole section of a Greek sea coast village which was built across not one but two sound stages and also utilized a gigantic five foot water tank which was used for the film's grand finale. See more »

My family was very poor. My father was a stevedore. There were fourteen children, and we had to fight for our bread at the table. I was lucky; I was born with a talent for mathematics. I learned to quickly estimate the odds against me, and then I beat them. Some people encouraged me along the way. Others snubbed or cheated me, but in my heart there is an indelible record of each transaction. We all play God, but some of us are better-equipped for the role than others.

Interesting but meandering story of the parallel lives of:
1. A megalomaniac woman who uses her "assets" to ascend the ladder to stardom
2. A producer/housewife (Susan Sarandon) who desires nothing more than to have her husband present half of the time.
Her husband becomes involved with woman #1, and complications ensue. Somewhat predictable towards the end, but seeing an early performance (and brief nudity) by Sarandon makes it interesting and worthwhile throughout.
Film also features Luray Caverns, which happen to be located in my native Virginia.
** out of ****.
