| early wife abuse drama
Before we heard a lot about wife beating, this excellent film depicted it from both sides and explored the issue. Sally Struthers is the abused wife, and Dennis Weaver is the confused and sometimes out of control husband. Tyne Daly is great in a supporting role as a friend of the wife.

Weaver does a wonderful job in depicting the husband and making him sympathetic. It is almost painful to watch his torment. He is a man deeply troubled by what it means to be a man, having picked up some bizarre signals in his childhood. As his life's frustrations come to a boil, he takes it out on Struthers, sometimes in front of their children. As his wife eventually struggles for independence, she engenders his jealousy as well as his anger.

This is an very moving and well done film for television. Highly recommended.
