This made-for-TV update of the 1933 version, which is based on the George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber play, is adequately done, but the first version certainly is better. It tells the story of a social-climber (Marsha Mason) getting ready to throw an extravagant dinner party for the elite. Lauren Bacall is great as a "trash" novelist.
