Face to Face stars real-life companions Elizabeth Montgomery and Robert Foxworth as a headstrong pair who clash in the Cradle of Civilization. Montgomery is a paleontologist, searching for the oldest fossil of man yet to be unearthed. Foxworth is a meerschaum miner, to whom the Kenyan government has accidentally issued a permit to dig on Montgomery's archeological site. They bicker, mutter dark oaths, throw mud at one another, and eventually fall in love as the sun sets over the northern Kenya horizon. Made for television, Face to Face was first telecast as a Hallmark Hall of Fame special.
