The Morning After DVD (1974) TVM Color. Dick Van Dyke, Lynn Carlin, Don Porter, Linda Lavin.

Many consider this the most powerful film ever made about the devastating effects of alcoholism. Based on the best selling novel, Dick Van Dyke plays a successful public relations writer who has a serious drinking problem that threatens his marriage and life. He lies to his wife (Lynn Carlin), colleagues and family as his life descends into hellish ruin. Shortly before taking on this role, Van Dyke admitted he himself was an alcoholic and had been seeking treatment (one of the first celebrities to do so). He was nominated for an Emmy for Best Lead Actor in a Drama and this film is still shown in treatment centers today.

*Very, very few prints of THE MORNING AFTER exist. After an extensive search we found what we believe to be the best surviving elements. We are pleased to make this available here on DVD, however the quality is not what you would expect of a state-of-the-art re-mastered print. It is rough. On a scale of 1 to 10 it would be a six or seven. But it is great for those who truly wish to see this important film about addiction and alcoholism.
