Trivia

Arthur Hailey closely based the story on the birth of the GTO, the prototypical muscle car created by 1960s Pontiac Division President John DeLorean, as well as the executive's affair with model and actress Kelly Harmon, who became DeLorean's second wife in 1969. DeLorean would later tell his own version of events in the best-selling book, "On a Clear Day YOu Can See General Motors." Forced out of GM, DeLorean would go on to greater notoriety as creator of the ill-fated DeLorean sports car. See more »

Great mini-series!
2 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Great mini-series! Very engrossing and entertaining. A terrific story about the 1960's auto industry and its effects on the families involved. A fine score by veteran television composer Morton Stevens - (Hawaii Five-0), who received an Emmy Nomination for his music to this 1978 mini-series. A video release would be great!
