The Betsy is a 1978 drama featuring an all-star ensemble cast directed by Daniel Petrie in a film based on the 1971 novel of the same name by Harold Robbins. The Betsy tells the story of a family-owned car company whose initial golden years have long since passed, leaving the once-great family business unsure of its future. The family pins their hopes on a new model called The Betsy, but as the company makes a last-ditch effort to revitalize its sales, the family gets torn apart by deceit and betrayal. The large and talented cast of actors includes Academy Award-winner Laurence Oliver as the family's patriarch and owner of the business, as well as Robert Duvall, Katharine Ross, Tommy Lee Jones, Jane Alexander, and Joseph Wiseman. The film features an original score from composer John Barry, famed composer for the James Bond film franchise. The Betsy is a gripping tale of the darker side of family business, when corporate interests begin to override personal loyalties.moreless
