Sometimes funny, sometimes dramatic, LOVING is most times dull. Based on a novel by J.M. Ryan, it's the story of freelance artist Segal and his wife, Saint, as they try to keep their rocky marriage together in suburban Connecticut. Segal is having an in-town affair with Young, and his work
situation is teetering. The combination serves to place him on the precipice of a breakdown. He has a chance at a large commission and is supposed to meet with mogul Hayden at a private dining club that caters to admen. Segal drinks too much and gets vicious with the club's prexy. Hayden finds
that behavior amusing and says he'll think about giving Segal the business. At a party tossed by his mistress' aunt and uncle, Segal finds out that Hayden liked him enough to award him the art business. He tells neither Saint (who thinks it's time they had a new house) nor Young (who thinks it's
time they had a more permanent relationship). When Phillips, the nympho wife of neighbor Doyle, begins to come on to him, Segal falls for it. The two of them go to a child's playroom that has closed-circuit TV (for parents to keep tabs on the kids), and the entire party crowd observes Segal and
Phillips as they make love. Saint watches and the crowd howls until Segal realizes what's happening as he spies the camera. He runs outside, not wearing his pants, where Doyle whacks him around. Then Saint pounds him with her purse until her arms get tired, and when Segal tells her he's won
Hayden's account, we are left with the feeling she might just stay with him. Roy Scheider has a small role, and Lansing, who later became a film executive and ran FOX studios for years before beginning her own independent company, plays a sexpot. Her business ability was far greater than her
acting prowess, and acting's loss became producing's gain when she doffed the sock and buskin in favor of the executive suite.
