    Sounds like a good quality blu which I wouldn't mind getting down the line. I read many of Sidney Sheldon's novels back then and looked forward to this film, but John Beck didn't jive with the character I had envisioned. But I still wouldn't mind seeing it again after all these years.

    Let's be honest here...this film is really only notable for being the answer to the Trivial Pursuit question: "What film did Fox Executives think was going to be their big hit of Summer 1977? (to the point of forcing theaters to run some crappy spaceship movie in order to book it)"

    Thanks to this review, I've been alerted to another Michel Legrand score; and an isolated one, at that.
    Further research has also shown me that the sole Oscar nomination for The Other Side of Midnight went to Irene Sharaff;
    representing her 15th and final career nomination for Costume Design.

    Also, Fred J. Koenekamp was the DP.

    Yup, I would say that there's plenty enough in the audible and visual departments to make this one worth exploring.
