Aspen

john heyes michael doug

(NBC, 11/5/1977 to 11/7/1977, 3 Parts, 120 each, 6 hours). A chic Colorado ski resort in the 1960s is the setting for illicit love, corruption and a sensational murder trial in this melodrama woven together from two novels (actually the title of one, the plot of the other) and subsequently spiced up with a new, more intriguing title (“The Innocent and the Damned”) the second time around. Involved are an ambitious young attorney, a drifter accused of murdering a teenage sexpot, a land developer whose bored daughter has become a jetsetter and an unctuous ex-gangster trying to make a land killing. Cobbled together from two novels—“Aspen” by Bert Hirschfeld and “The Adversary” by Bart Spicer—the miniseries initially ran for six hours in three parts.
