I Can't Seem to Find This Movie Anywhere,,,,
28 January 2006 | by michelemontagueSee all my reviews

I thought I saw the 1971 version of The Best of Everything on Turner Classic Movies But I went on their web site and checked their huge data base, but I couldn't find it (only the 1959 version with a very sad looking Joan Crawford, I mean, her disappointment with these soap opera movies she was being offered by that point is written all over her face. Poor woman. At any rate I saw a portion of the movie on cable, I just don't know which "classic" movie station has it in their library. I'm a sucker for these Bell Jar type of movies. Good girl from good family & good school, Vassar or Radcliffe or something comes to the big city (NYC) & learns about sex & money & how to become derailed by all the mean boys out there. But they know how to dress like Grace Kelly (with or without Edith Head) & they learn how to be shrewd business women. The Best of Everything is a little Sylvia Plath, part Valley of the Dolls & of coarse Rona Jaffe.

At any rate they were playing it on cable a couple of months ago, but was never able to see the whole thing, finished or unfinished. Maybe it was on the not-so-good Fox Classic Movie station. If anybody knows anything, I live in the Los Angeles area (I know I hate it here too) and if it comes on cable in this area...maybe someone could check in & I'll get lucky, like I am a character in a Woody Allen movie...
