Joe Don Baker,
A war vet finds out that a former prostitute had his baby. Doubting it's his, he gives it away, so she reports him. Twenty years later, she still wants to find her son. She meets a young man and falls in love, but the vet's prison term ends.
Not listed in the credits, or anywhere else for that matter, is that this is one of Katie Sagal's first movies. She plays the unemployment manager.
I remember this movie when it first previewed. I saw it on TV when I was a kid and never forgot it. I thought James Franciscus was believable (back then), but I'm sure it appears like some pretty cheesy acting these days.
This movie is simply about a man's spiral down the ladder of corporate success. It's sad, and I wasn't expecting this kind of plot, that's why I never forgot it.
Like Easy Rider, I was shocked at the end. If you like this type of 70's made-for-TV movie, you won't forget it either.
