Anyone who thrives on the carnal and venal sins of the ultrarich showbiz crowd will get a major jolt from this sleazy two-part TV movie, concluding Monday night, which makes the plots of Dynasty and Dallas look like something out of an Afterschool Special. Malibu is portrayed as a high-priced beachfront Sodom, and George Hamilton, Kim Novak, Eva Marie Saint, Valerie Perrine and Richard Mulligan connive, cheat and rob each other with such relish it's a wonder they're not destroyed by fire and brimstone.
