(NBC, 11/12/1974, 90 mins). An updated version of David Lean’s 1946 film classic (based on Noel Coward’s 1936 drama “Still Life”) retelling the bittersweet tale of two married strangers who meet by chance in an English train station and drift into a short but poignant romance. Sophia Loren made her TV acting debut not as the proper British lady of the original but as an Italian-born housewife married into the English middle-class for 17 years.
