The is a terrific film!
I have seen this film at least a dozen times and I've enjoyed it more and more with each viewing. George Peppard gives the performance of a lifetime as Jonas Cord, a tycoon modeled after Howard Hughes. Jonas makes his fortune in chemicals, then branches out into aviation and then, most importantly, into Hollywood.

I love the absolute male/female dichotomy in the film. Men are men and women are women, and that's that. Each manipulates the other for their own gains. A lot like real life!

My favorite actor in the film out of a wonderful cast is the eternally youthful Bob Cummings. Bob was 53 when this was filmed and looked about 36. He really knew how to play a role. What a guy!
