By Love Possessed synopsis

After his wife, Clarissa (Barbara Bel Geddes), accuses him of being incapable of love, prominent Massachusetts lawyer Arthur Winner (Efrem Zimbalist Jr.) begins a torrid affair with the alcoholic spouse (Lana Turner) of his sexually disabled business partner Julius Penrose (Jason Robards Jr.). Arthur also struggles in his attempts to persuade his wayward son Warren (George Hamilton) to become a lawyer like him -- even though his own career brought him neither fulfillment nor emotional stability.
