NBC, 12/4/1976 to 12/19/1976, 4 Parts, 6 1/2 hours). This adaptation of Arthur Hailey’s 1975 tale of power and greed in the banking business won an Emmy Award nomination as Outstanding Series of the 1976-77 season. Christopher Plummer won an Emmy for his role as one of two ambitious corporate vice presidents who become rivals when an imminent boardroom vacancy arises. Other nominations went to Susan Flannery (as Kirk Douglas’ lawyer girlfriend), to Joseph Biroc for his photography, and to Phil Normann for his graphics and opening titles. Of interest: Jean Peters returned to films here after spending nearly 20 years in retirement—most of them as Mrs. Howard Hughes. The movie was subsequently shown in three two-hour segments.
