Dorothy Parker's Big Blonde

Sally Kellerman stars in Dorothy Parker's 1929 O. Henry Prize-winning short story which poignantly chronicles the decline of a vivacious showroom model and good-time party girl in the 1920's, who gives up her high-life for marriage with a travelling salesman (played by "Third Rock from the Sun's" John Lithgow). When he turns out to be a hard-drinking philanderer, the marriage deteriorates; and the now-blowsy and dissolute aging flapper turns to drinking for solace, moving from man to man as she sinks into an alcoholic haze and a deep funk.
