Trivia

Jack Mitchell (Peter Boyle) works for a fictional company called Con-Amalgamate. Con-Amalgamate appeared in later films written by Peter Hyams. In Capricorn One (1978), Con-Amalgamate is the company whose "made-in-America screw-up" is allegedly responsible for the astronauts being grounded under false pretenses. In Outland (1981), Con-Amalgamate is the corporation that is mining the Jupiter moon Io. Ironically, Peter Boyle also stars in Outland (1981) as the corporate head of Io's branch of the corrupt Con-Amalgamate company. See more »

T.R. Basken - Where to see?
6 November 2008 | by mmcaskeySee all my reviews

T.R. Baskin was a favorite of mine. I have been trying to find it for years. With a cast as strong as this, I wonder why it has never been released in DVD or video. I would love having some help finding this!! What resonated with me was a line Bergen had - How do you know when you are accepting too little for yourself or expecting too much? I have been trying to answer this my whole life.

I didn't remember that it was shot in Chicago, and I would love to see the 1971 shots of that as well.

And I remember the music too was excellent. Please re-release it!

Candace Bergen stood out as a performer in this. I knew of her acting before this - but she really stood out in this role.
