Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Filmed in Spain, this TV movie stars Stuart Whitman as a painter who drops out of sight for seven years. Upon resurfacing, he discovers that his name has been affixed to high-priced forgeries. What's more, a crooked art dealer is capitalizing on Whitman's supposed death. While mulling through all these plot developments, Whitman falls in love with Brigitte Fossey, whose previous lover is the duplicitous dealer who is benefitting from reports of the artist's demise. Originally titled A Spanish Portrait, this film was shot in 1970, then lay unseen on the shelf for nearly three years.
