The Affair is a 1973 American TV movie starring Natalie Wood, Robert Wagner, Bruce Davison and Jamie Smith-Jackson. This made-for-TV movie marked the return to television for Natalie Wood after an 18-year absence. The film starred Natalie Wood in her first appearance since Bob & Carol & Ted and Alice. Her co-star was Robert Wagner who was her first husband and whom she had recently remarried. Courtney Patterson (Natalie Wood) is a beautiful young songwriter who is physically disabled due to polio. Her physical condition has made her emotionally guarded, cynical and suspicious of the kindness of strangers until she meets Marcus Simon (Robert Wagner), a handsome older attorney. Courtney (Natalie Wood) cautiously moves towards romance, although she remains wary of intimacy. Marcus slowly wins her over. Unfortunately, her family is not supportive of their relationship, providing yet another obstacle that the couple must overcome. This is a fascinating movie which sizzles with sparks and excitement between Wood and Wagner. An excellent watch for any movie buff!
