Synopsis

A happily married couple -- he's a successful physician, she's a respected writer -- refuse to be crushed when a series of heart attacks repeatedly threaten the doctor's life. Both stars (Garner in particular shedding his genial rugged man image with extra poundage and thinning hair) demonstrated true grit in this weeper and won Emmy Award nominations, and the film itself was nominated as Outstanding Drama. Fay Kanin's persuasive script was based on the book by Martha Weinman Lear, and the doctor's real-life cousin, Norman Lear, was the film's executive producer. James Garner was named Best Actor for his against-type performance by the International Television Movie Festival.
