This pilot for a long-forgotten TV series stars Ben GAZZARA AS A RETIRED LAWYER WHO HAS A YEAR TO LIVE. HE DECIDES TO JOIN THE JET SET CROWD, which was pretty new in 1965, AND FLIES OFF TO THE RIVIERA, WHERE HE ENGAGES IN SKY DIVING, RACE CARS AND DEEP SEA DIVING. He MEETS a swinging lassie (Crawford) and falls for her. Eventually, he knows he will have to let her know about his condition, but for the time being, they have lots of jet set fun. Ugh. This was made when the world was changing -- the Beatles were big and and we baby boomers were starting to come of age. A show like this was made for a strictly white, middle-class, middle-aged audience, one that had lived through WWII and the Korean War, and that might wish to do what the lawyer does, but are shackled to their home in the suburbs, their 2.3 kids and dad's daily grind at work. Things on TV would change dramatically over the next decade, and this type of froth, shot completely on back lots of course, would mercifully disappear. I always liked Gazzara, but I prefer the Gazzara of later movies like "Road House," kin which he played a very convincing bad guy.
