Trivia

Made as the pilot for a TV series which never happened. Six hours of drama were filmed, therefore much had to be deleted for the broadcast movie. See more »

Not uninteresting

Well it's a rather not so bad drama, set in the early thirties, inspired by a Thomas Wolfe novel showing a young author, a novelist who tries to emerge by writing books about the American society, the capitalism in particular, and who also went to Germany during the early days of Nazism. I have never read the book, nor any other book from this author: Thomas Wolfe. But the character here seems to have the same fate as the true author: Wolfe, who died in 1938. And you may confound Thomas Wolfe with Tom Wolfe, the author of BONFIRE OF VANITIES, a sort of look like of Norman Mailer, another great writer who also talked of the American Way of Life with very accuracy and powerful way. Not a bad TV movie, but not foe whole audiences.
