All Star Mini Series Starring Kim Novak
1 May 2006 | by WilliliwawSee all my reviews

This ABC mini series film collected a lot of well known names set around the plush Malibu community, all the players do fine work with the biggest star being Kim Novak,, but also had Oscar Winners James Coburn and the Eva Marie Saint, and other big marquee names such as Valerie Perrine and Troy Donahue, along with Chad Everett, Susan Dey, William Atherton in this series. While all the stars doe fine work and contribute fine cameos, I thought Kim Novak did the best work in this Film in a rather tricky to play part. Troy Donahue once so big a star at Warners has as slight but intriguing part in this film.

I thought Bill Atherton had a fine future in films. What happened to Bill?
