Made for television, the two-part To Be the Best is the sequel to Barbara Taylor Bradford's A Woman of Substance and Hold The Dream. Lindsay Wagner plays the CEO of a merchandising empire, whose life and livelihood is threatened by a hostile takeover. Meanwhile, Lindsay pursues a hot romance with her chief of security, Anthony Hopkins. Originally telecast August 2, 1992 Part One of To Be the Best establishes the various characters and plotlines. In part two, which first aired August 4, 1992, Christopher Cazenove dominates the proceedings as a greedy corporate raider-who happens to be Lindsay's cousin. The critic for TV Guide compared the sudsy goings-on in To Be the Best to "soap left in the sink too long."
