Based on a Best Seller by Jacqueline Susann. January Wayne (Raffin), the adoring daughter of movie producer Mike Wayne (Douglas) returns home to New York, only to find her father married to Deidre Milford Granger (Smith), the fifth richest woman in the world. The marriage is one of the conveniences for Mike, who has lost his magic touch as a producer, and is in desperate need of money to continue his and his daughter’s lavish lifestyles. Jealous January bitterly resents her father and cannot accept the moral codes of this new world, finding only frustration. She gets a job with Gloss Magazine and falls in love with Pulitzer Price-winning novelist Tom Colt (Janssen), whose virile prose and celebrated fistfights turn out to be a compensation for his physical inadequacies. Her Stepmother Dee wants her to marry David Milford (Hamilton), Dee’s handsome young cousin and wolf-about-town, who’s having an affair with the reclusive retired movie star, Karla (Mercouri), who in turn is carrying on a clandestine lesbian affair with Dee.
Once Is Not Enough was released in theaters in June of 1975. Brenda Vaccaro won a Golden Globe Award (and an Academy Award nomination) for her supporting performance as the man-crazy editor of a fashion magazine.
Olive Films has not released any details concerning the exact tech specs and special features that will be included with the disc.
