Trivia

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 »

Quotes

Larry Douglas: [dancing together] Are my medals cutting into your boobs?
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Shakespeare or Marlowe?
Larry Douglas: Cathy, you have to know how I feel about you, especially when we dance so goddamn close.
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Actually, maybe we should just sit down.
Larry Douglas: [sitting down] I don't know why you're so annoyed. That's one of the nicest compliments a man could pay a woman.
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Strange, but I feel you're the only man that can come up with it any time day or night.
Larry Douglas: Only with you.
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Oh yeah. What are you packin' there, a Louisville Slugger?

My Favorite All Time Film From the 1970's!
8 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Beck is so sexy in this film. Susan and Marie were adorable. Love the Sidney Sheldon twists and turns (Master of the Game is a favorite of mine too). Hauntingly beautiful soundtrack-the best ever! The soundtrack definitely adds so much to the passion of this film. And what a change for Susan after the Rocky Horror Picture show. I have seen The Other Side of Midnight 14 times and it gets better every time.I thinkthis is a masterpiece (and yes there are some very trite lines)however, its a beautiful love story and reminiscent of the 1970's and the way we all were back then. I don't feel that all films have to be so intellectually stimulating that the critics will like them. This was so much better than Star Wars to me. I adore this film. Love it Love it! You got my vote! Wonderful forever!
