Summary
World War I veteran William Wilson has everything: loving wife, good health, Wall Street career --and a "drinking problem." Penniless overnight when the stock market crashes, Bill quickly descends into a stormy sea of booze. Then he meets Bob Smith, an Ohio surgeon with the same "problem." Together they discover a way to stay sober --one day at a time, and their mutual triumph would soon become the world's
Awards note
James Woods won a Best Actor Emmy Award for his portrayal of William Griffith Wilson.
