Loosely based on the life of Jimmy Hoffa, this four-hour movie traces the rise of Tommy Vanda (played by Joe Don Baker) from Chicago dock worker to influential labor leader who, like Hoffa, eventually finds himself behind bars in a federal prison and later, not long after his parole, and again like Hoffa, is taken for a ride, never to be seen again. Emmy Award nomination: film sound editors.
