Based on a Best Seller by Jacqueline Susann (Valley of the Dolls). January (Deborah Raffin), the adoring daughter of movie producer Mike Wayne (Kirk Douglas) returns home to New York, only to find her father married to Deidre Milford Granger (Alexis Smith), the fifth richest woman in the world. The marriage is one of the conveniences for Mike, who has lost his magic touch as a producer, and is in desperate need of money to continue his lavish lifestyle. Jealous January bitterly resents her father and cannot accept the moral codes of this new world, finding only frustration. She gets a job with Gloss Magazine and falls in love with Pulitzer Price-winning novelist Tom Colt (David Janssen), whose virile prose and celebrated fistfights turn out to be a compensation for his physical inadequacies. Her Stepmother Dee wants her to marry David Milford (George Hamilton), Dee’s handsome young cousin and wolf-about-town, who’s having an affair with the reclusive retired movie star, Karla (Melina Mercouri), who in turn is carrying on a clandestine lesbian affair with Dee. Directed by Guy Green (55 Days at Peking), with original music and score by Henry Mancini (Victor/Victoria). Brenda Vaccaro co-stars as the man-crazy editor of the fashion magazine.
