Description by OLDIES.com:
"Heiress Falls to Death, Husband Alleges Suicide" newspaper headlines declare. But the cops don't buy it. They believe it's a case of cold-blooded murder and they're pinning it on Steven Rojack (Stuart Whitman), a controversial TV talk show host whose prime-time target is the city's mafia-infested police force. Walking a tightrope between the cops and the mob that owns them, Rojack finds sanctuary in the arms of his former flame (Janet Leigh), a woman he left in the dust years ago. Will she betray his trust and set him up for a fall -- or take a second chance on love? Based on Norman Mailer's lurid bestseller, this scintillating murder mystery will keep you guessing until the last shocking line of dialogue.
AN AMERICAN DREAM is adapted from the Norman Mailer novel of the same name. Stuart Whitman plays an acerbic TV talk show host who kills his wife Eleanor Parker during an argument. Whitman exerts his influence to cover up his crime, and the official verdict is suicide. But Whitman has not reckoned with the "Hell hath no fury" intensity of his cast-aside mistress Janet Leigh. When AN AMERICAN DREAM bombed at the box office, the desperate distributors re-titled the film SEE YOU IN HELL, DARLING.
