In Between the Lines (1977), directed by Joyce Micklin Silver, pleasing performances issue from John Heard, Lindsay Crouse, Stephen Collins, Jill Eikenberry and others. Thanks to Silver, though, Eikenberry looks almost unattractive, and so does the satisfactory Gwen Welles except for her bare bosom.

The flick is about the worldly concerns of workers at an underground newspaper, the Mainline, in Boston. (Heard’s character is a Damn Good Writer.) Although I was often entertained by it, I found very little of it to be believable. It ain’t the gold we would like to see from Silver.
