Because of a phenomenal success of the book, 20th Century Fox was sure that this was going to be a huge hit at the box office. At the same time there were such low expectations surrounding Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) that most theaters refused to book the film. So the distributor at Fox came up with the idea of a package deal: telling theater chains that if they wanted this movie they had to book Star Wars first. This movie went on to become a box office dud while Star Wars went on to become one of the most successful films of all time. 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.

This movie has it all....great love story even though it is cheesy sometimes....action....revenge and a sad but realistic ending.....why it was not a big hit I don't know but I will always like it and wish it was out on DVD......I wish the movie channels would show it more often...
It seems that when this movie was released the studio promotion was not there.....they didn't spend any money on it.....
When I think back on all the movies that are love stories this one always comes to mind and "the Summer of 42".... there is just something about the simple way they were written and how they show up on screen... anyway this will always be one of my favorites cant stop watching it....
There is a another movie that comes to mind that was not promoted much and is not out on DVD either and that is "Cinderella Liberty" a James Caan and Marsha Mason movie that is great....if you like love stories and some comedy this movie is special....Eli Wallach is also in the movie as a Navy Chief that is losing his rank and getting washed out of the Navy....James Caan trades places with him (and this does go on) and both live happily ever after.....10 out of 10 on this movie.
