The Betsy

Power struggles in the motor industry are personified by young Tommy Lee Jones, who should be dynamic but lacks the energy of a suburban second-hand car salesman, and old Laurence Olivier. But not even decades as a 'great actor' allow Olivier to invest dialogue like 'Never shit a shitter' with feeling, so he plays with his American accent instead. All the sex is so discreet that the movie never allows itself to get as trashy as a Harold Robbins bestseller should be.
