I loved the chemistry with Sam Elliott and his wife,Katherine Ross.But the performance that gets overlooked,which I remember,and would like to have a copy of,is Vera Miles,as the discarded wife (widow,which we find out).She underplays and her interaction with Travis McGee,(Sam Elliott) is so skilled coming from a veteran leading lady.I loved how she ironically summed up her marriage, and her role in the missing husband's life with no pity or bitterness. This must have been one of her last acting roles.You never hear anything about her.Although,I think she is still alive. I believe, I saw that she might live in retirement in Florida -(don't quote me,just a rumor.)How could I get a copy of this?
