Fraser C. Heston
"Ron Catlan" (Charlton Heston) is a quarterback for the New Orleans Saints whose career is rapidly coming to an end. The crowds boo him and the injuries are taking their toll. While he realizes the inevitability of retirement he is terribly conflicted about what he wants to do after his football career finally ends. And it's affecting his wife "Julie Catlan" (Jessica Walter) as well. He finds relief in alcohol and eventually an affair with a woman named "Ann Marley" (Diana Muldaur). But nothing seems to satisfy him. Anyway, rather than disclose the entire plot and possibly spoil the movie for those who haven't seen it I will just say that this was a decent football movie but it moved a bit slow in some places. I liked the performances of the actors just mentioned but other than those three nobody else really stood out. Additionally, the insertion of actual game footage was a bit too obvious but that was typical for this time. On the whole I'd rate this movie as about average.
