Based on the novel by Warren Adler, the film rights were obtained soon after the novel's release in 1984. However the film then languished in "development hell" for 15 years. In the 1980s, Dustin Hoffman was attached to star in the film but later withdrew as he did not like the earlier drafts of the script. By the 1990s, Kevin Costner was attached to star and James L. Brooks was attached to direct it, though this never came to fruition either. Eventually, Harrison Ford and Sydney Pollack showed interest in the project and it finally went into production.

I had to write after reviewing the narrow opinions shown. If any of you know of anyone who cheated on their spouse and then died without explaining the reasons, you will have to appreciate this film. The needing to know, the desire to know exactly when the affair started, the want to know what the other attraction the other had that you did not, all of those answers...the rummaging around personal belongings to find some logical inference, the mission to make it all make sense...All to find nothing that will fill in the gaps. This movie depicted the horrors to one's own identity and self confidence. This will always be one of my favorites.
