Movie Info

The original title of this TV movie was Sidney Sheldon's Windmills of the Gods. Rule of thumb: If the author's name is part of the title, the film is generally shown in two parts. Jaclyn Smith heads the all-star cast as an idealistic midwestern political science professor who is appointed US ambassador of Romania. Smith's mission of peace is endangered by an evil terrorist group, the "Patriots of Freedom," which (according to Sheldon) has been responsible for such outrages as the assassinations of Anwar Sadat and Indira Gandhi. Ms. Smith's only ally against the Patriots of Freedom is suave Frenchman Christopher Cazanove--and even he isn't completely above suspicion. Part Two of Windmills of the Gods makes up for the absurdities and dull stretches of Part One, culminating in an assassination attempt against the plucky Smith. Filmed in Bucharest, Chile, England, France, Morocco and Yugoslavia, Windmills of the Gods was adapted for television by the breathtakingly prolific John Gay.
