Synopsis

This "expansion" of Ernest Hemingway's vivid novel about American expatriates trying to find themselves in lives of disillusion in Europe just after World War I proved to be as flawed as the 1957 movie version that starred Tyrone Power, Ava Gardner and Errol Flynn, among other notables. Not helping matters was producer/writer Robert L. Joseph's insistence that not only was he writing in Hemingway's style (introducing new situations and characters like The Count, played by Leonard Nimoy), but offering such brazen observations as "This is the way Papa Hemingway would have written it for TV, I'm sure."
