Rage of Angels
In this lavish two-part, four-hour adaptation of Sidney Sheldon's racy novel, Jaclyn Smith is a beautiful young lawyer who overcomes a mob frame-up while working as an assistant D.A. to become a top defense attorney, while juggling romantic affairs with a married political hopeful (Ken Howard) and a rugged mobster (Armand Assante). Along the way, the plot weaves itself around and through adultery, suicide, murder, homosexuality, drowning and sudsy handwringing. Composer Billy Goldenberg won an Emmy Award for his score.
