Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Destiny of a Woman is comprised of vignettes from the Man and the City TV series, which ran for 13 weeks in the fall of 1971. Anthony Quinn plays Thomas Jefferson Alcala, the Mexican-American mayor of a large southwestern city (possibly Albuquerque). The bulk of Destiny of a Woman concerns a disturbed woman (Lois Nettelton) who kidnaps a baby. When an extortionist complicates the rescue, Alcala steps in. This "TV movie" made the network and syndication rounds long after Man and the City bit the desert dust.
