Evening in Byzantium

michael producer ford larson

(Syndicated, 8/14/1978 and 8/15/1978, 2 Parts, 120 mins each, 4 hours). Operation Prime Time’s third production and first contemporary project deals with power plays at the Cannes Film Festival, where a once famed producer is trying to finance a new movie and international terrorism, which comes straight from his secret script. Action, violence and sexual intrigue are among the ingredients liberally laced into the four-hour tale (based on Irwin Shaw’s 1973 novel), which stars Glenn Ford as the idealistic producer with the politically provocative script and cover girl and TV commercial model Erin Gray as an aggressive writer who chases him for an interview.
