Before and After

mathews murphy bradford company

(ABC, 10/5/1979, 120 mins). Humorous tale of a housewife (Patty Duke) who goes to a fat farm, only to discover that her husband (Bradford Dillman) has been playing around while she’s been trying to dump the weight he’s found excessive. She takes up with a young artist who doesn’t care about her weight, and her jealous spouse soon begins demanding her undivided attention, but, thinner-but-wiser, she must decide what she really wants from life. Rosemary Murphy, as her somewhat disapproving mother, replaced Inga Swenson.
