World War I veteran William Wilson has everything: loving wife, good health, Wall Street career --and a "drinking problem." Penniless overnight when the stock market crashes, Bill quickly descends into a stormy sea of booze. Then he meets Bob Smith, an Ohio surgeon with the same "problem." Together they discover a way to stay sober --one day at a time, and their mutual triumph would soon become the world's.

Great intro. of the foundation of AA. A must view to all in the program. Both James Woods & James Garner were perfect for the leading roles. FYI, James Woods's royalties are used to buy the book titled "Alcoholics Anonymous" and donated to prisons and treatment facilities.

The story of Bill W who started Alcoholics Anonymous which opened up other Anonymous programs helping millions of people ...AWESOME!

A revised history of A.A. that leaves out unconvient details,.. such as Bill's spiritual awakening, the role of a 'Higher Power', the 12 Steps, etc., etc. "Just two drunks trying to help each other". They can't very well talk about individuals having a personal non-church relationship with God on American Television !!

This is a very well done movie about the founders of AA. Incredible acting by James Wood & a good reminder for an alcoholic contemplating a return to drinking.
