The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The "fish" in the title of this picture refers to the astrological sign Pisces. Not all of Pittsburgh is due to be saved, but the members of a third-rate NBA basketball team could sure use some salvation. When all the team members except for Moses Guthrie ([[Performer~P22063~Julius Erving~juliusdrjerving]]) quit, astrologer Mona Mondieu ([[Performer~P12304~Stockard Channing~stockardchanning]]) and streetwise Tyrone Millman ([[Performer~P7201~James Bond III~jamesbondiii]]) come to the rescue. The supporting cast includes [[Performer~P77022~Jonathan Winters~jonathanwinters]] in a dual role, as well as real-life basketball champs [[Performer~P41763~Meadowlark Lemon~meadowlarklemon]] and [[Performer~P89~Kareem Abdul Jabbar~kareemabduljabbar]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
