Rona Jaffe's best-selling novel comes to life in this witty tale about the personal and professional lives of the men and women in a New York publishing firm. Heading a huge cast, JOAN CRAWFORD "gives an excellently etched performance" (Hollywood Reporter) as a tough-talking editor who can't seem to win at love. There are a few more interesting stories around the office than there are in the manuscripts at Fabian Publishers. Among the principal players: a new secretary (HOPE LANGE) who quickly gets her boss's (CRAWFORD) job and romances a handsome editor (STEPHEN BOYD); a Colorado secretary (DIANE BAKER) who falls for the wrong man (ROBERT EVANS); and a would-be actress (SUZY PARKER) who's jilted by a two-timing director (LOUIS JOURDAN). Slick and glossy, The Best of Everything is a panorama of office politics before women's liberation.
