Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Previously titled Trick Eyes and Portrait of a John, this lurid made-for-TV movie is the story of Christopher Jordan (William Shatner), an aeronautical engineer who has been happily married for 12 years. Despite his domestic tranquility, Jordan is unable to forsake his kinky sexual compulsions. Unwilling to take a mistress, he begins frequenting prostitutes, then falls under the spell of an extremely expensive call girl (Cybill Shepherd). His insatiable desires ultimately ruin his life and his career, and very nearly land him in prison on a murder charge. An Anglo-Italian production filmed in Vancouver, Secrets of a Married Man debuted September 24, 1984 on NBC.
