| Good cast in Made for TV mafia soap opera
Made for TV movie trying to be realistic in that 70s TV way ( it plays like an episode of "Streets of San Francisco"). Having said that there is nothing new in this story about a California "mob" family with a father just out of prison and a son who wants to go straight.

The main reason to watch this is seeing Ted Danson ( with a great early 80s hair cut) and David Morse ( with longish hair !) in very early roles, and legends like Ray Milland and Vera Miles effortlessly out acting everyone else. Although only Ted Danson looks vaguely Italian.

The film has every usual mafia storyline introduced but doesn't then really go anywhere with them. The ending is abrupt also with a lot of things left up in the air. Given this it looks like a busted TV pilot.
