Storyline

TV adaptation of Bruce Jay Friedman's off-Broadway play. Tandy, Merideth and assorted others unexpectedly wake up in a steambath with no easy exit. After spending some time there, it becomes clear that the steambath is a sort of Afterlife, where indifferent souls come to tell their stories to God who happens to be the attendant picking up the towels.

Trivia

Bill Bixby was given the lead role of Tandy because Bruce Jay Friedman's young son liked him on The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1969) TV series. Until that time, Bixby was mainly known for playing comedy, not drama. When approached by producers about who he had in mind for the lead, Friedman named Bixby. See more »

Why has this wonderful movie disappeared?
18 April 1999 | by (Corsicana, TX) – See all my reviews

I watched this 3 times in one month on public TV nearly 28 years ago. Then it vanished. It remains one of the best shows I have ever seen. It was funny and touching and totally unexpected. Support public TV and ask for it!
